An extract from the diary of a young Medieval peasant girl- by Sarah Be

Winter is coming. The chill is in the air and dark is starting to dominate light.
Our thatched roof is dented inwards from the strength of the wind and leaks are starting to appear.
I helped Mother on the field today, just to get out of the dark house and keep warm.
Dinner was barley porridge as usual but Mother made the effort to make it hot.

- quoted from peasant girl by nobleman Adam Forwin
(since the peasant girl can't read or write)

    Thanks for leaving a comment on our page in Hamilton. Its wonderful that you are approaching 20,000 page views which is an awesome achievement, while we have a lucky amount of visitors our page has been going since 2009 so it means that we have a lot of posts and a lot of work and quite a bit of our traffic for some of our older posts. Its easier to get visitors the longer that you have a class page.

  3. It gives off a very good aura that usually identifies the start of a good story. I want to read more...

  4. This really shows the hardships of peasants.
