Gr 8 Up–Emphasizing the experiences of ordinary people, these titles focus on subjects such as education, religion, and occupations. Details about the less glamorous side of life (Greek table manners, the Black Plague) will appeal to more reluctant historians. While the visuals (maps, photographs, reproductions) aren’t the strongest, the books are well written and draw heavily on primary sources, making them solid additions to collections.
