A Heroes' History of Medieval Britain
Model: A Heroes History of... Medieval Britain
Take 6 Henrys, 5 Edwards, 3 Richards, 2 Williams, 1 Stephen and 1 John. Throw in a good number of invasions and battles, crusades and castles, revolts and riots, protests and plagues, then add a few feudal, double-dealing barons. Mix in 1 barmy king, 1 murdered king, 1 slain archbishop and 2 dead royal nephews and combine with a pinch of courtly love, chivalry, sword fighting and jousting. Stir well, cook for four hundred years and there you have the Middle Ages! From William of Normandy and the Battle of Hastings in 1066 to Magna Carta in 1216, the Wars of the Roses, then Richard III’s defeat at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. Medieval Britain was a stew of bubbling rivalries for the throne and simmering power struggles between monarchy and church. Get a taste of it here!

Ocean Heroes and Villains
Model: Heroes Look at... - Heroes and Villains of the Ocean
The oceans of the world can be exquisitely beautiful, yet with very little warning they are capable of turning into harsh and dangerous places. Underneath the surface, over many thousands of years, large and small creatures have adapted and evolved mechanisms to enable them to survive in the difficult conditions. Living together they have successfully survived in a finely balanced environment, until man came along.
Today, equipped with every modern diving aid, we still find the ocean environment alien and sometimes hostile. For the creatures living in the oceans, with no knowledge of our motives, it is sometimes necessary for them to defend themselves when they feel threatened. Their reaction can often be swift and decisive, the consequences devastating for the victim. Whether human, or another sea creature, the reaction is instinctive –defend or eat!
Why not colour in the pages, whilst you decide who are the real heroes and villains in the ocean?
