Follow a Middle Ages community through a year, month-by-month, as they complete the chores necessary for survival. Some activities may be familiar, such as cutting firewood in the winter, while others may seem distant, such as basket making. The illustrations are bold and vibrant. (Gardeners will admire the weed free gardens.) Enjoyable for readers of all ages, this book provides an opportunity to reflect on the activities of the year both current and historical.
