History isn’t just about dates…it is about people! Want to learn about how people lived in the Middle Ages and discuss whether they really lived that differently from us? This course will answer your questions about medieval life in the North East and beyond.
This course gives an introduction to life in the medieval world, covering topics such as food, drink, music, theatre, books, poems and popular songs, houses and castles, graffiti and travel. Each week will involve a new activity such as cooking a medieval dish, examining items such as coins, graffiti and other objects, and listening to medieval music. One week, Rachael will lead you on a virtual tour of a medieval building . Each weekly activity will be followed by a discussion about our own modern-day experiences, how the way we live has changed, and which things stay the same.
