Hello everyone !
Not everyone would die young.
Life in the Middle Ages is often seen as short because, for example, of the conditions in which people lived.
However, if we tend to say that people at that time would die at 35, we must remember that this is a simple average.
Infant mortality was quite high, yes, but if a man was still alive at age 21, he had a good chance of living to be over 50.
We often perceive the life of peasants as trying because we imagine them working a lot.
Still, they had plenty of rest. Sunday was a day without work; it was even systematic.
All this is without counting Christmas, Easter and all those religious festivals which made them rest during the Holy Days.
In fact, for about a third of the year they were at rest.
Good day and good game ;)
