Introduction



Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hang out with Kings and 
Queens?  Were knights really as chivalrous as they appeared to be?  How did 
people come up with such cool coats of arms?  What kinds of foods did they 
eat?  What the heck was the Black Plague and did people really die from it?  

Throughout the book, Catherine, Called Birdy, we've learned quite a 
bit about life in Medieval Europe, but there is so much more to uncover.  
This webquest has been created for you to "dig deeper" into the life and 
times of the Middle Ages.

(This webquest is based on the webquest created by Mrs. Impullitti from 
Detroit, Michigan.)  For more information, go to her website:
