Publisher's Summary

Here, National Book Award winner Richard Winston explores life in the Middle Ages - from the fifth to the 15th centuries - beginning with the fall of the Roman Empire and ending with the dawn of the Renaissance. In both countryside and cities, from the peasants to the bourgeoisie to the nobility, no aspect of life in this era is left unexplored.

Certainly there is charm in the tales of medieval castles and chivalrous knights, but the middle ages were also brutal and stinky, full of disease and death. This book provides an interesting yet sobering view of what life was like during this period in European history.
