FLORENCE LOUISE BOWMAN (1880–????)
Britain In The Middle Ages (1920, 2nd Edition)
101 pages long—excluding 1 legible page of Dates. Divided in short chapters; Ideal for novice readers.
"Since, in the early stages of school work, it is more important to present, as vividly as possible, some of the fundamental historic ideas than to give any outline of events, it is hoped that this collection of stories, told from the chronicles, may provoke readers to discussion and further inquiry.
Questions have been included in the appendix, some suggesting handwork, both as a means of presentation in lessons and for illustrative purposes.
Considerable use has been made of literature as historic evidence. Stories like those of the Knights of the Round Table often leave us with a clearer impression of the spirit of the times than any historic record. Many books of the kind are now easily accessible and could be read side by side with the text. Collections of pictures, such as the Bayeux Tapestry, published by the Victoria and Albert Museum, and Foucquet's Chroniques de France, offer valuable opportunities for some research on the child's part."
