    Catapults & Crossbows Discover the physics of projectiles

    It’s time to get medieval on physics! Build ten sleek and updated models of catapults and crossbows. These classic siege weapons from the middle ages also happen to be great tools for teaching physics, including lessons in force, energy, motion, and projectiles.

    A crossbow is a medieval type of weapon based on a bow and arrow, in which the bow is mounted horizontally on a stock. Build and experiment with five different types of crossbows. The projectile, called the bolt, has a safe foam tip and across-section that prevents other projectiles from being launched. When the bolt is loaded into the crossbow, a rubber band is pulled backward and energy is stored in the stretched rubber band. A trigger releases the bolt and the rubber band launches it through the air toward its target.

    A catapult is another medieval ballistic device that uses mechanical rubber bands and counterweights to fling projectiles into the air. The 32-page, full-color manual has illustrated step-by-step instructions.

    Exit: The Forbidden Castle  Finally, a vacation! This year, you’re going to an idyllic village in the mountains. Instead of driving, you decide to take the train this time. After a three hour delay, you arrive in your vacation rental, where you find various brochures for local events and attractions — including an impressive castle. The flyer looks quite amateur and self-printed, but you’re a sucker for medieval castles!

    The next day, you get up and go to the castle. There’s no ticket booth. No one else appears to be around. Well, at least you can explore the place in peace! You enter the castle and find yourself in a magnificent throne room. Suddenly the big, wooden door locks behind you and you realize that maybe (again) this was not such a good idea ...

    The castle is full of mysteries. Only if you can solve all of the puzzles together in time will you escape. If not, your creepy host will probably never let you leave again ...

    This game can be played only one time because you must markup, fold, and tear the game materials to solve the riddles and escape.

    The Pillars of the Earth The Board Game

    The setting is England at the beginning of the 12th century. The construction of what is to be the greatest and most beautiful cathedral in England begins. Builders compete against each other to contribute the most to this cathedral's construction and, in so doing, score the most victory points. To play the game, first players must use workers to procure raw building materials, and then use craftsmen to refine the materials into victory points. What actions will you take on your path to victory? Will you seek an audience with the king perhaps, to get to the metal you need? Or should you avail yourself of the support of influential personalities? A brief stay in the monastery could be as beneficial to you as strong ties to your craftsmen. Your workers may also be used to produce gold, the currency of the game. Players are given three master builders each turn, each of which can do a variety of tasks, including recruiting more workers, buying or selling goods, or directly obtaining victory points. Getting early choices with a master builder costs gold, as does purchasing more capable craftsmen. Players must strike a balance between earning gold to fund their purchases and earning victory points.

    Transport yourself to Medieval England as described by Ken Follett in his best-selling masterpiece novel, Pillars of the Earth.

    The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople

    SKU: 2621

    $35.00

    A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume—the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World—chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end on the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. Kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, but ordinary people all over the world seize power. New currencies are created, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions, the Black Death millions more. In the chaos of these events, our own world begins to take shape. Follow the story back; check out the History of the Medieval World and the History of the Ancient World! Hardbound. 816 pages.

  10. Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    SKU: 4368

    $24.95

    Wonders of Old spans from 5000BC – the Present and beyond History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects… * kingdoms * empires * rulers * scientists * literature * great writers * musicians * and so much more! It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student’s learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history. The truth is… many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years’ War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year – 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make. Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9×12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability. Bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn’t happen too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the pages of the book. Hardcover. Grades 5-12. 104 pages.

  19. Life in a Medieval City

    Life in a Medieval City

    SKU: 2853

    $15.99

    Life in a Medieval City, by Joseph and Frances Gies. Life in a Medieval City is the classic account of the year 1250 in the city of Troyes, in modern-day France. Acclaimed historians Frances and Joseph Gies focus on a high point of medieval civilization—before war and the Black Death ravaged Europe—providing a fascinating window into the sophistication of a period we too often dismiss as backward. Urban life in the Middle Ages revolved around the home, often a mixed-use dwelling for burghers with a store or workshop on the ground floor and living quarters upstairs. A developed economy, focusing on textiles, farming, and financial services, could be found in the town center, where craftsmen competed for business while adhering to the guilds’ codes of conduct. There were schools for the children, though only boys could attend and the lessons were taught in Latin by a priest. The church was a hub of both religious and civic life; services were lively and filled with song, and baptisms and other special occasions brought neighbors together to celebrate. The weddings of wealthier townsfolk were lavish affairs full of song and dance and drinking that could sometimes last for weeks. 288 pages.
