9780744582208: Castle Diary

What was it really like to live in a castle during the Middle Ages? This book gives the answer. Sent to his uncle's castle for a year to learn ten-year-old Toby keeps a journal of everything that happens there from such great events as a boar hunt and a tournament to more everyday activities like baking bread and cleaning out the garderobes (toilets). The book also contains a reference section covering castle-building and use, armour and weapons, heraldry and the feudal system.
