Why do we have to all this field work every day? I'm really tired
Son, it is our role in feudalism to work in the fields as peasants
As a noblewoman, it is my duty to take your role until you return
Ugg! Too much work.
I have built this castle to prevent intruders but I have to go and fight
Ok, just make sure the peasant finishes his work
Peasants and Manor Life
What are my responsibilities as a peasant?
Well, we have to work several days a week farming the lord's domain. We also have to repair the lord's roads, bridges, and fences.
Feudalism is a system in which everyone has a role in society. The peasants or lower class work in the field in return for protection from the knights. For peasants, society looked rough because of the amount of work that they put in every day. They were also not treated the best.
Noblewomen took over the manor while lords were off fighting. The lords build castles to prevent attacks and in the end, they were grand. The peasant's point of view is important in this because it shows the work being forced on them for such a small reward.
Have you read over the chivalry young knight?
The peasants had to do a lot of work in the fields every day. Manors had to be self-sufficient out of necessity. There was not much travel leading to them depending on what they could produce themselves.
A chivalry is a code of conduct that required knights to be brave, loyal, and true to their word. Also, knights had to start training at a very young age.
Yes sir, I am ready to be brave. I started training at the age of seven and am well prepared
