Daily Life in Medieval Times – An all time favorite reference book

Good eventide to you!

I was invited to contribute to an article written about medieval life for a magazine and I found myself going to one of my all time favorite resources: the books written by Frances and Joseph Gies.  If you aren’t familiar with the books please go to your nearest bookstore (on-line or by foot) and check them out.  They are wonderful accounts written in an easy to read style that will have you forgetting your reading a reference book.  Just recently I found the book Daily Life in Medieval Times by the Gies and published by Barnes & Noble Books.  It combines three of their books: Life in a Medieval Castle, Life in a Medieval Village and Life in a Medieval City.  It’s an oversized book with lots and lots of color pictures.  Don’t we all love picture books?! 

Enjoy! from your faithful Scribe, Linda

    All three in one book! Whoa, that’d be easier on my bookshelf. Of course then I’d have to give up the original three, which I’ve had since 1982 or so…

    Give away the originals? NEVER!! Can’t give away a dearly beloved friend!
