I have never owned any land in my life. My lord practically gets more land every month, so I get more and more work.
GET BACK TO WORK!!
Social Class: Peasant
We are at the very bottom of the classes, but we make up the bulk of the population so we can rebel.
We peasants are called serfs and that means that we are bound to our lord's house and land. We have to ask permission just to leave the land.
Please let me go see my family!!
Most people treat us like crap, but some masters are nice. We pretty much produce everything around here. We work many hours getting resources while our Lords are relaxing.
Peasants paid the lord a fee when they married, when they inherited their father's acres, or when they used the local mill to grind grain. Other payments fell due at Christmas and Easter. Because money had largely disappeared from medieval Europe, they paid with products such as grain, fruit, honey, eggs, or chickens.
here you go!
Life isn't the best when you're a peasant. The peasant family ate a simple diet of black bread with vegetables such as peas, cabbage, turnips, or onions. They seldom had meat unless they poached wild game at the risk of harsh punishment. If they lived near a river, a meal might include fish. At night, the family and any cows, chickens, pigs, or sheep slept together in their one-room hut.
