Summary
In medieval England, nobody asked children, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" At a time when around half the population died before they reached 18 and a rigid system of social hierarchy held sway, life choices were determined early and adult responsibilities sometimes began not at 16 but as early as seven. This film looks at the lives of medieval children embarking on their journey into adulthood and reveals that although they had to grow up quickly in a harsh world, the experience could also be richly rewarding. Focusing on the three pillars of medieval society - religion, war, and work - Dr. Stephen Baxter explores how children became valuable members of society: monks, rural laborers, domestic servants, knights, and craft apprentices.

Summary
Publisher description: Castles, cathedrals, nobility, knights in shining armor, witches, dungeons, gothic splendor and almost constant war. This video tells the fascinating story of this thousand years of history from approximately 500 A.D. to 1400 A.D. The Middle Ages were filled with grand as well as miserable episodes, just like any other period of history. Scholars from Yale University and UCLA share their insights into leaders like Charlemagne, the power of the Papacy, the Crusades, and the lifestyle of the people who lived during this very diiverse and fascinating age.
