About the book:

This is another outstanding addition to a captivating series for any history buff or beginner historian. Taking the reader through a 'typical' medieval city, in this case Troyes in 1250, the Gies' introduce us to all aspects of everyday life throughout the year - from schools and scholars, to authors and tanners, to the famous Hot and Cold Fairs that ran for a few centuries. Discovering what people ate, wore, how they interacted, the imposition of taxes, the return to Roman Laws and courts (and the increasing importance of lawyers who were despised back then LOL!), makes for fascinating reading. As a fantasy writer, these sorts of fact-filled and page-turning books are invaluable. Highly recommended.(less)
