  • Most people lived in small, smoky houses with only one room.

  • Doctors would usually treat illness or injury by "bleeding:" the patient and giving them herbs.
  • It was common for kids to play with dolls or wooden swords.
  • Adults would spend their free time playing games like chess or dancing.
  • Almost every town had merchants that would buy and sell goods on the side of the road.
  • Some people tried to start their own shop but failed.
  • This is the blacksmith's apprentice. He has to work very hard and make a masterpiece before he can become a true blacksmith.
  • Before there was court you would have a trial by being thrown into a well. If you floated you were considered guilty, if you didn't you would drown but be considered innocent. Either way, you'd die.
