Medieval Women at Home
COOKING - CLEANING - SHOPPING - GARDENING - LIVESTOCK & POULTRY

What a medieval woman did at home vastly depended on where she was born and who her parents were.

A wealthy noble woman lead a very different life to a peasant woman living on a farm in a small village or a merchant woman living in a town. Areas of employment and recreation are covered on their own separate pages.

This page is divided into three sections, each taking at look at the kinds of domestic duties which a medieval woman might expect.

MERCHANT & TOWNSWOMEN AT HOME
