Ensure your pupils are thoroughly prepared for the new-style Common Entrance History examinations with this revised edition of a best-selling, ISEB-endorsed textbook.

The first edition of Medieval Realms became a best-seller because of the way it combined step-by-step building of pupils historical understanding and skill with thoughtful and targeted exam preparation. This second edition faithfully retains that approach while thoroughly revising the exam advice to cover the new approach to source evaluation required for the Common Entrance examinations from 2015.

Key features of our approach:

- Read! The bold, meaty and authoritative narrative provides clear explanation of the content

- Think! For each topic carefully constructed tasks build pupil's understanding of the content

- Prepare! There is also extensive advice and practice in how to write Common Entrance essays and how to evaluate historical sources to ensure pupils are thoroughly prepared for the Common Entrance examination.

Plus a new feature for the second edition: 'An historian writes..' - accessible but stimulating insights from secondary sources which contribute to pupils' wider understanding of the topic and expose them to historical viewpoints on the events they are studying.
