Enjoyed my re read and whereas from my review below I was annoyed by some of the minute details the first time I read this book I didn t feel that way the second time so increase my rating to four stars from three Funny how time and I guess knowledge of the period helps you to appreciate the research of the authors and the fact they do include such facts This is the third book in the Gies series on medieval life and I have to admit that while I really enjoyed aspects of it learning the differences between a seneschal reeve and bailiff reading about the suabbles and offences that erupted between villagers and which make Neighbours Eastenders Bold and the Beautiful etc as well as Criminal Minds seem tame and unimaginative Also the details on childbirth and the role of the parish was fascinating but overall felt that compared to the other two it became bogged down in too much petty detail on ploughing exact amounts of fines etc I didn t feel that kind of specificity added much on the contrary it interrupted the flow of the narrative as you try and calculate the amounts of a harvest a tithe a fine in order to understand the impact when the real point is the fact they were reaped or leveled in the first place It also meant that what to now has been a riveting non fiction series was dull in parts I wondered if it may have been because it was Joseph s solo effort and not written with his wife Frances therefore reflecting his interests than hers but I may be waaaaaay off No doubt what I found distracting will fascinate others and indeed there is so much in this book to lose yourself in as life in a medieval village from diet to daily routines to spiritual welfare and the complex feudal system governing the free person and villeins is explored and explained A very good read
