Medieval LEGO Hardcover Book
While Runescape may be our favorite fantasy game, it has absolutely cultivated an interest in the history of the Middle Ages. Medieval LEGO takes you through real English history in the middle ages with a unique twist, with every event illustrated by a tiny little LEGO scene. With contributions by medievalists and scholars, this book brings medieval history to life in a fun, kid-friendly way.
Inside, you'll learn about events like the Battle of Hastings, the chartering of Oxford University, and the signing of the Magna Carta. You'll witness the infamous Black Death, and the Great Famine, and you'll read about famous historical figures like Robin Hood, Richard the Lionheart, Geoffrey Chaucer, and William the Conqueror.

A Note from the Author:
The Middle Ages in England were undoubtedly exciting times. The foundations for universities, modern Western democracy, and many great inventions were laid out in England during this fascinating period. By better understanding this time, we can better understand our roots and our future. As Winston Churchill once put it, “The longer you can look back, the farther you can look forward.”
My book, Medieval LEGO, explains history with the help of some of the leading medievalists and scholars from around the world, with the added bonus of LEGO scenes illustrating each event. I hope you enjoy learning about this amazing era as much as I enjoyed creating this book.
