What exactly is an elephant’s graveyard, and why does the smell of coffee and walnut cake instantly remind me of my Grandma Sheila? Also in this issue: Do you think the Internet making us all stupid? Find out how the world’s smartest people prepare for a test.
The story of brave King Arthur and his gallant knights of the round table has everything you could possibly want from an epic tale; dragons, giants and monsters; magic and mayhem; romance and chivalry (not to mention the odd spot of blood and gore). But there is one question that still baffles historians and archaeologists alike: Did any of it actually happen? And, if it did, then when?
We know the Romans left Britain to look after itself sometime about AD 410. Could it be that a great warlord emerged out of chaos to fight for Britain’s independence against the invading Anglo-Saxon horde?
Get to know the myth that sparked a thousand fireside tales. Make like Merlin and learn how to conjure a cloud inside a bottle using the wonders of science. Find out why you should never (ever) trust a green knight, and create your very own Excalibur (for strictly ornamental purposes, obviously).
It’s still on the drawing board, but February issue investigates journeys of all kinds. It will include the journey of survival for animals and birds that cover vast distances to keep ahead of bad weather and in search of food. And, much closer to home – what exactly happens to the food we eat on its long journey around our digestive tracts? Also in this issue our philosophy series ‘Just Think’ tackles the tricky subject of human migration. Plus Sir John Franklin MB, the Victorian explorer who attempted to chart and navigate a section of the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic.
AQUILA is a monthly educational magazine that will keep children entertained with intelligent, advert-free reading. Every issue contains factual articles, puzzles and fun activities that will enrich their general knowledge.
Absolutely – we steer clear of stereotyping as it is our intention to introduce all children to new and different ideas. Educational specialists recommend AQUILA because it widens children’s interest and understanding, rather than encouraging them to concentrate exclusively on their favourite/best subjects.
