Play and games in the middle ages – about childhood 30.06-01.07
For children living in the middle ages time for play was scarce. As soon as they could help in the household or in the workshop they were put to work.
They could sweep floors, prepare dinner, tend the fire, chop wood etc. The bigger children looked after the smaller ones, helped in the shop and in the house.
Very few went to school. Mostly boys from the nobility was sent to school and most people couldn’t read.
