Details

Living in the Middle Ages covers the period from 800 CE to 1500 CE, focusing on two epochs set in 1100 CE and 1450 CE. It examines the day-to-day lives of medieval Europeans across all levels of pre-Norman and feudal society, from barons and bishops to serfs. The feudal system is explained, as well as the various jobs and relationships of people from different classes. A description of the basic structure of a typical castle is provided, in addition to details of its maintenance and management. The growth of the town and the rise of the middle class are also discussed, as well as the social developments that accompanied both.

With timelines, maps, detailed photography, and full-color illustrations, Living in the Middle Ages is an engaging reference for young adults that brings the ancient world to life.

Chapters include:
  • Working for the Overlord—the Peasant
  • Life in the Castle
  • The Power of the Church
  • Life in a Medieval Town.
