Dark Knights and Dingy Castles
by Terry Deary
Author: Terry Deary
This book is about living like a medieval Knight lived. This book has a lot of bellyaching, funny images. Dungeons in castles were slimy, smelly and unbreakable. People that worked in toilet pits are quite unpopular. Would you ever like to work in a toilet pit? How does the rack work? The victim was laid onto a wooden frame and ropes tied to his/her hands and feet to a roller on each end. As the rollers spun in opposite directions the victim was stretched and then killed. If you are the Earl of Suffolk and you are captured in a battle by a squire what would you do? (a) Kill him (b) Jail him.
Star rating: 8/10
