Middle Ages

Middle Ages history curriculum is always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!

The history of medieval times is, to me, absolutely fascinating and exciting.  The poverty of body and soul of the Dark Ages, the excitement of Knights in shining armor, princesses, and Vikings, makes the Middle Ages an emotionally-stirring study.  History should be like a good movie - full of suspense and excitement, wonderful lessons learned, inspiring heroes, and pointing us back to God and His sovereignty.  It is, after all, His story.  Keep your homeschool history alive and exciting with living books and historical fiction from the fascinating ages of Medieval Times, Dark Ages, Middle Ages, and Vikings.  Spark your homeschool students' love of history and build your homeschool library while enjoying Schoolhouse Publishing's low, low prices.
