Want a laugh and become super intelligent at the same time? Well here is the book for you.
The Medieval Messenger, is a thirty two page book designed in the style of a tabloid newspaper, and covers major events that took place during the medieval period. Its covers these events in forms of news articles, features, adverts, spot the difference, personal adds all the things you would expect .
As you can see the front page covers the arrival of the Black Death, it goes on to talk about it in depth on page thirteen. On page twenty two it runs a story
"What's new in the Spanish Inquisition" We met the man who knows.
Effigies of the Great, on page 6, invite you to pick your choice of prominent people, from popes, kings, famous warriors (no Visigoth's, Vandals or Barbarians) and have them carved in stone to impress your visitors.
My favourite is the advertisment for Elkhorns Safety Visors.
No War Is Complete Without ELKHORN'S SAFETY VISORS.
How many times have you had your nose chopped off and thought, I wish I'd had one of those.
Don't take my word for it, its great for kids, a quick read for an adult and is dead funny.
