Description
Take an inside look at the life of a knight -- from battles and banquets to sieges and chivalry -- in this updated edition of Eyewitness: Knight . Illustrations, maps, charts, and timelines look at the history of medieval knights and their armor, jousting, heraldry, hawking, and crusades. With content appropriate for 8 -- 12 year olds, the book covers everything from the very first knights to the decline of chivalry.

Each book retains the stunning artworks and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: Vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
