What was it like to live in a western European town in the middle ages? What sort of houses did people live in? What sounds, sights and smells greeted them when they went out to buy food and fetch fresh water? Were the streets safe or dangerous, clean or filthy, crowded or quiet?;With photographic re-enactments, this volume aims to show readers scenes from everyday medieval life: a holy day parade; children at school; an apprentice at work; and a craftsman in his shop. Readers are also allowed glimpses inside the houses of the rich and the poor: a merchant in his parlour; the wealthy at a feast; and a peasant in his hovel. Doctors attending a plague victim and a cart carrying off the bodies of the dead are also shown. The "I was there" series aims to bring history to life for a 20th-century readership.;John D. Clare is the author of the "I Was There" series, which includes - "Pyramids of Ancient Egypt", "Knights in Armour", "Vikings", "Christopher Columbus", "Roman Empire", "Industrial Revolution", "Ancient Greece", "First World War" and "Italian Renaissance".
