Scenes of Medieval Life by Joseph & Frances Gies

If you have not heard about these three classic books before, then their great success lies in describing medieval life in their choosing a single site (whether a city, village or castle) to represent the characteristics of an entire way of life. And by a judicious combination in using excellent local records and comparative data, they pioneered a new method of capturing a whole world of medieval culture, whether in a city, village or castle. This fine collection consists of;

  • Volume I: Life in a Medieval City depicts life circa 1250 in Troyes, capital of the rich county of Champagne, seat of a bishop and site of the two famous fairs of Champagne. (244 pages)
  • Volume II: Life in a Medieval Village depicts medieval life in the village of Elton, north of Cambridge. The authors chose this English village as its surviving medieval records are so rich. (252 pages)
  • Volume III: Life in a Medieval Castle depicts medieval life in Chepstow Castle to be on the borders of England and Wales; chosen again because its surviving medieval records are so complete. (232 pages)
