“Knights, castles, and my childhood”
This book had an amazing influence on my childhood, sparking my imagination and fueling ideas for how simple machines work and how they can be made. In the decades since reading it I have studied middle-age sword fighting, blacksmithing, and period carpentry and construction. This book is sure to inspire the young (and old!) learner in your home.
