Authors:
Tim Cooke

The At Home With... series uses a fascinating magazine-style approach to reveal what fashionable life was like at the time of the Vikings! Find out all about the invasions and raids in their struggle for the Kingdom of England. Each book in the series focuses on a highly popular and widely studied period of history. The subjects include famous individuals and their homes, fashions, pastimes, food and drink, ways of getting around - and the must-have possessions of the day. Life in the past was in many ways very different from life today, but in one way it was very similar. There were always some people who were wealthier, more powerful or more famous than everyone else - and it was those early celebrities who set the fashions of the age and who got tongues wagging with early celebrity gossip. A fun take on a Key Stage 2 National Curriculum topic!
