This book tries to cover a little bit of everything briefly but sadly lacks enough detail to satisfy a serious scholar. I was unsure if the book was pitched at children, which if so gives a fair introduction and is a worthwhile read. Unfortunately a subject such as this requires a number of elements to be explored in depth to give context to the material. Possibly more detail on fewer chapters would have been more beneficial

As a history buff I was interested to see how much I didn't know about life in a Medieval Castle, and this book covers just about every aspect in fair detail. I found it to be an enjoyable read with a few eye-opening facets. I won't go into detail to avoid spoiling things for other readers, but if you are a fan of historical fiction chances are you will like it as much as I did. It now has a place on my "historical" bookshelf.

This was an excellent lesson into the life of just one Medieval way of life. As a lover of history, it appealed to me on so many levels. I would thoroughly recommend this book to any person interested in history, whatever their age be.

A Very good book for young student's who may require information on medieval life in a castle. Would have benefited however if the author incorporated a few sketches or drawings to assist with the explanation of items and details of the castle

Very informative piece of literature about life in a medieval castle from the Lord of the castle to the low born servants. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is a fairly short book, but covers the daily life for both the lords and servants. Probably not deep enough to be a scholarly text book, but enjoyable enough for the average reader.

I think that I had miss-understood about this level of this book .......I hasn't realized that it was aimed at school-age level.
