Intended primarily—but not exclusively—for home educators using the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education, History Pictures for a Living Education: The Vikings can be used by students of all ages and forms studying British History, and makes an excellent companion to history readers such as Stories of the Vikings, by Macgregor.
History Pictures for a Living Education is a unique series designed to bring history to life for students and young people studying the events of the past. Brought to you exclusively by Charlotte Mason Beehive these books are largely based off Black’s History Pictures, a series published by A. & C. Black in the early twentieth century. An edition of Black’s History Pictures was recommended as a suitable resource for young students of history by Miss Charlotte Mason of the Parents’ National Educational Union.
Printed on 80lb gloss paper, the book is spiral bound for ease of use, all pictures are clearly labelled, and most include captions to provide context and continuity throughout.
