Hi! My name is Jacob Tatum and I am here to inform you on medieval times! In this scene there are two people selling things on the side of the road! They did this quite a bit back then so they could make money!
During the middle ages the large towns that were very dangerous and filled with thieves and criminals! Here you see a rich man soon to be robbed by someone hiding around the corner! You would expect to see police officers patrolling the grounds but back then, there were no police officers!
Not only was it very dangerous in the big towns, it was also very crowded and space was limited because of the walls that were built around the town.
Since the walls surrounding town made space very limited, people had to build up to six floors! The floors also slowly grow larger and by the sixth floor they were only a few feet apart! This was a huge fire hazard and sometime very large parts of the town burned down!
The living conditions in medieval towns were very poor. People would throw there trash of their balcony and hope the pigs would eat it! This caused lots of disease and unhealthy conditions.
In the medieval times there was also a great decline in feudalism. Because of all the plagues many people started dying and peasant work was becoming more valuable. Therefore peasants started becoming paid more and started fitting in more to the crowds.
