Grade 6-9-Simplified, highly visual introductions to fascinating eras. While both volumes feature acetate overlays, the accompanying content is strong enough to stand alone without these gimmicks. Each topic is allotted a double-page spread. The texts are punctuated with striking, full-color illustrations. Middle Ages spans the 5th-15th centuries, covering the family, costume, pastimes, lords and peasants, the Crusades, etc. Details of street scenes and castle overlays are especially interesting. Renaissance begins with medieval conditions that contributed to the "rebirth of knowledge" and goes on to encompass the early 14th century-1633. Subjects addressed include architecture, exploration, and painting and sculpture. Whole volumes have been written on subjects that these series entries successfully condense into paragraphs.
