"Time Traveller books form a children’s introduction to everyday life long ago. The books deal mainly with the more exciting happenings of daily life--things like journeys, feasts and holidays. But these are specially chosen to show, as well, how life is shaped and changed by major historical events. The Time Traveller Book of Knights and Castles deals with a particularly exciting period in medieval history: Northwest Europe at about 1240. This is the time when the experience of the crusades was breaking up the old social order; when towns were growing and nations developing. The crusaders had brought back revolutionary new ideas about warfare, castle-building, and chivalry; and the knightly class was still a power--though this would change, soon. It is a time which gave rise to some of our best ideas and most stirring stories." Illustrations by Toni Goffe, designed by John Jamieson.
