edium aevum -- Medieval or The
Middle Ages. We think of knights in shining armor, lavish banquets,
wandering minstrels, kings, queens, bishops, monks, pilgrims,
and glorious pageantry.
In film and in literature, medieval life seems
heroic, entertaining, and romantic. In reality, life in the
Middle Ages, a period that extended from approximately the
fifth century to the fifteenth century in Western Europe,
was sometimes all these things, as well as harsh, uncertain,
and often dangerous.
