    Interesting book about medeival life

    Life In A Medeival City was a very interesting and informative read. However, the authors seemed to spend too much time and too much detail on certain small and insignificant things. When they weren't doing this, though, the book gave a very in-depth look at the day-to-day life of Troyes, and the way they described it made me want to keep reading. It was filed with vivid descriptions of many different aspects. It wasn't a boring book, and I enjoyed it.

    Very intriguing

    Pretty good read- also easy to read. I am fortunate to own several of Giles works. All are excellent. Too many times when we think of 'medieval times' we think of knights in shining armor or beautiful ladies. Giles's book talks about the workers and common people. The jobs, the city, the law system. The local church. The sanitation. The trading fairs. Certainly a well done piece of work.
