Mini Travel Companion

I stuck this book in my pocket as I toured castles in Wales, Scotland, and England. It was a great help to me in learning more about the architecture of castles, as well as what life was like during the age of the fortresses.Great for children and adults alike.

Fantasy Castles

Ever since I traveled in Germany and France as a teenager, I have been fascinated with castles. This tiny book shows what a kitchen looks like in a castle. There are lots of fireplaces, three-legged pots, even an apple corer was available back then. For anyone interested in castles, this is a good place to start. You can find information on early castles and forts, how they were built and specifics about the tower. Other information you will enjoy reading about: The Castle Dwellers The Garrison Daily Life Attack and Defense There is also a fascinating section on castles around the world, from Britain and Ireland to Japan. A glossary and index makes this quite useful. They also have so many beautiful pictures of castles, including the Bran Castle that inspired the Dracula legend. If you are looking for a book for children: Stephen Biesty's Cross-Section castle is pretty amazing as you can see inside a 14th-Century castle. ~The Rebecca Review
