Ages 7 to 14 years. In the Middle Ages, a family's position in society determined where children lived, what type of education they received, and what games they played. This colourful book features beautiful artwork that helps show how children spent their days in medieval times. Topics include: the importance of family; a carefree life for young children up to the age of seven; home-made toys; indoor games including chess, backgammon, and cards; outdoor activities including hunting, horseback riding, and archery; growing up a peasant; children in town; apprenticeships for older children; noble boys learning how to become a knight; noble girls learning how a lady runs a household; clothing and hygiene; education according to sex and status; religion and a child's moral upbringing; holidays; community fun at markets and fairs.
