This is an exciting Key Stage 3 resource for teaching and learning about the issues and events that characterise medieval Britain. It never lets go of the period's story, providing opportunities to examine the big picture and investigate particular topics. For instance, did you know who made sword belts out of the skin of an English treasurer, that anyone who could read Psalm 51 at the time was likely to avoid the hangman's noose, or why a 14th-century Londoner ended up drowning in his own cess pit?
