Romance Meets Reality in the Middle Ages

Certainly there is charm in the tales of medieval castles and chivalrous knights, but the middle ages were also brutal and stinky, full of disease and death. This book provides an interesting yet sobering view of what life was like during this period in European history.

Lukewarm and Tedious 2.5 stars

There was a lot of general information but it was very, very dry. My mind wandered and didn't re-engage much because none of it was very startling, new, or interesting. May be good for a beginner in a classroom where children are held captive (wink) and accustomed to boredom. I finished it by listening to fall asleep.
