Owning a book during the Middle Ages was actually a big deal. Books were rare and expensive because they were not mass-produced. Each book was copied by hand by a Scribe or Copyist until after the invention of the printing press in the year 1440 – near the end of the Middle Ages. In order to understand the complex process, one needs to examine the various steps of creating a book. Scribes, illuminators and the Magna Carta are covered in this lesson plan.
