I recommend this book to anyone interested in the middle ages and/or architecture. It provides the reader with good background information on the construction process and its history. Learn how the era's ingenious new toolsand techniques helped to create not only cathedrals and castles, but also bridges, houses, and city walls.

Numerous first hand accounts are presented, along with a great number of color illustrations to guide the reader and liven the work up--usually a couple per page. It also includes a long reference section in the back of different primary documents for further study. It provides a great backdrop for further learning, and was very entertaining the whole way through.

A small-format, beautifully illustrated history, part of the Abrams "Discoveries" series.
