A Medieval Life

Standard

This week’s Friday YouTube video link, features a BBC documentary about 14th century Europe, Britain to be precise.

A fascinating story which brings social history alive, it shows life at the time through the eyes of the peasants, instead of the history books’ usual fascination with kings and battles.

The 14th century was a time of economic boom and bust, climate change, foreign wars, famine and the infamous Black Death. A roller-coaster of events which led to irreversible social change for all strata of British society.

The story focuses on the life of one peasant woman, Christina Cok in her one-parent family, and what happened to them during these turbulent times.
