Rate this:
Looking at the world of the medieval gentry through the eyes of three families in East Sussex--the Etchinhams of Etchinham, the Sackvilles of Buckhurst, and the Waleyses of Glynde--Scenes from Provincial Life presents an insightful picture of what day-to-day life was like for a member of a knightly family in the Middle Ages. It draws on charters, estate documents, and even information gleaned from buildings and churches of the day to provide an illuminating account of the central preoccupations of landowners--estate management, military service, provision for relatives, and arrangements for schooling.
