What an interesting book-great reading for those involved or wanting to get involved with reenactment groups like the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism). The aerial photos and drawings pertaining to this period that are documented here are truly educational. I learned so much of the period from the book and to help those just learning a glossary of terms is located in the back. Language is not stagnant and has changed a bit from then to now. I recommend it as a must read for anyone who would like to know all of the aspects of life in Medieval times. This book covers much ground for it's size.

I love all things historical, especially medieval. This book was filled with lots of knowledge and tidbits, though I found the writing style a bit dry.

I found this book full of cool insights and unique facts. It was also a good vocabulary test :P
