Exploring the medieval world of castles and armored knights, this book and model set for readers 7 to 10 also describes how archaeologists piece together the past to discover what life was really like for those who lived then. Archaeologist Annalie Seaman explains how to interpret clues from medieval documents, paintings, maps, and ground surveys, and then apply that knowledge to excavate the site of a besieged castle and reconstruct both the castle and the battle scene. Preprinted and die-cut paper pieces can be assembled into a realistic castle model, complete with miniature knights—see how the pieces of wall fit together, what's located inside the courtyard, and how a siege weapon like a trebuchet works.
