Re-discovering the past: 1066-1500 Medieval Realms

An exploration of life in the Middle Ages. The foundation edition, Discovering Medieval Realms, won the TES textbook award on its publication. This updated and streamlined edition has made the material more usable in mixed ability teaching while retaining the Schools History Project's characteristic emphasis on challenging readers to think deeply. It should be particularly useful for Year 7 pupils in Britain, especially those of average or below-average ability. The book features simplified text, structured tasks with support for extended writing, source investigation, and new enquiries.
