Once upon a time, as a child, I read a series by Susan Cooper titled, "The Dark Is Rising" after its second book. I'm considering using the series with my daughter who is a HUGE history fan to introduce her to the fantasy genre. I don't remember how much historical reference is made and to which time periods but I do vaguely remember feeling like there were at least references to historical artifacts. Can anyone help me out?
Let me clarify that I'm not looking for authentic historical information for her, I just think references might create a nice bridge for my budding historian.
