Chaucer's People: Everyday Lives in the Middle Ages
A Paperback edition by Liza Picard in English (Oct 18, 2018)
'A holiday in the complex, joyful, indelicate medieval world'
John Higgs, author of Watling Street
Chaucer's People is an absorbing and revealing guide to the Middle Ages, populated with Chaucer's pilgrims from The Canterbury Tales. These are lives spent at the pedal of a loom, maintaining the ledgers of an estate or navigating the high seas. Drawing on contemporary experiences of a vast range of subjects including trade, religion, toe-curling remedies and hair-raising recipes, bestselling historian Liza Picard recreates the medieval world in glorious detail.
