About This Book

Some people think that medieval Britain was a miserable and murky place, full of poor folk grubbing in the fields, being beaten by their lords and dying horribly of the Black Death, or in a war far from home. But it was not all bad, for long ago young people gathered together when their work was done, in the fields and on village greens, laughing loudly and telling stories of knights and derring do, of meddlesome monks and devilish demons, of plodding pilgrims and dog-headed people from lands far away. In this collection of medieval tales for children, storyteller Dave Tonge has adapted some of these stories and mixed them with morsels of medieval history to give young readers a fair and fine flavour of life long ago.
