Synopsis: The Middle Ages usually conjure up images of chivalrous knights, fair maidens, wandering minstrels and fairy-tale endings. Readers of all ages are enchanted by this period yet often overlook the everyday lives of the ordinary people of the time. This series examines not only great medieval castles, kings and ladies but also the story of the common working people of towns, villages and religious communities across Europe. Detailed portraits of four specific aspects of medieval life -- the countryside, the city, the castle and the church -- emerge through lively, entertaining text and an abundance of stunning historical art. From the great personalities of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Geoffrey Chaucer and King Arthur to farmers, servants, craftsmen and clerics, this series reveals real people who ruled, worked, created art and music, pursued dreams and coped with fear and danger. Informative sidebars woven through each title allow readers to discover the truth about women's roles and achievements, how medieval children had fun, some favorite recipes and a number of popular songs, stories and poems.

From Booklist: Reviewed with Kathryn Hinds' The Countryside.

Gr. 5-8. Readers of the impressive Life in the Middle Ages series will be struck first by the beauty of its design, then by the intriguing information. Each volume focuses on one facet of medieval life, and although there is inevitably a little overlap, reading one after another opens up a panoramic, cohesive view of the period. City begins with the fundamental question of where power lay in urban areas and looks at how the answer changed over time. Cities are viewed as places of learning, worship, construction, commerce, recreation, and family life, as well as disaster and disease. Countryside explains manorialism (the social system in which a lord granted land and protection to peasants in exchange for their labor) and distinguishes it from feudalism. The layout of a medieval village as well as its residents, their work, recreation, and customs are vividly described. The many period illustrations include medieval paintings reproduced in rich, heraldic colors. With decorative borders setting off sections of text, relatively large type, and generous use of white space, each page looks inviting. A glossary, a bibliography, and Web sites are appended.
