Long referred to as the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages was actually a period of great scientific and technological advancement. In agriculture, the inventions of the heavy plow, horseshoes, and harnesses made farming easier. Children will enjoy following the advancements in medicine, military weapons, astronomy, and astrology up until 1500.

About the authors

The author of the powerful young adult fantasy novel, When Night Eats the Moon, is Joanne Findon, Celtic scholar and university lecturer. She has had a fascination for Stonehenge since she first saw photographs of it as a child. "I have returned [to Stonehenge] a number of times, but my last trip was the most powerful because I walked there from the town of Amesbury. . . . Even with the fence around it, this monument is still a powerful sight."
