  • The majority of people working in the country were farmers. They worked very hard all day.
  • Daily lives for peasants were working the land for the lord who lives in castles or manors. They grew crops such as barley, wheat, and oats. They also had gardens where they grew vegetables and fruits.

  • Houses in the medieval era were small with only 1-2 rooms. Usually everyone slept in the same room and was very crowded. 
  • Peasants wore clothing made from thick wool to keep them warm during the winter.The wealthy wore much nicer clothes made from fine wool, velvet, and silk. Men wore a tunic, woolen stockings, breeches, and a cloak. Women wore a long skirt called a kirtle, an apron, woolen stockings, and a cloak.
