Description

The Middle Ages ran from the end  of the Dark Ages to the Renaissance in the 15th century. DK Eyewitness Medieval Life  gives the reader an in-depth look at life during that era, in both the  town and the country, and for the peasants as well as the aristocracy.  

Discover the hardships of life on the land, and the magnificent  tournaments of the royal court. Learn how food was prepared and served  at a great banquet. See the illuminated chronicles kept by scholarly  monks and how master craftworkers used their skills to decorate the  great cathedrals.

Featuring artifacts, costumes, furniture, and historical illustrations, Medieval Life is a unique and compelling introduction to the people and culture of the Middle Ages
