Each book in the series also includes information on festivals of the time and exciting project ideas that will help young readers identify with peoples and cultures of the past.The Middle Ages was a historical period in Europe that lasted from 476 A.D. to 1492 A.D. The people of that time lived mostly in the countryside as farmers. They made their clothes and crafts from local materials, such as wool, leather, wood, clay, and iron. Skilled artisans also wove intricate tapestries, built huge cathedrals and palaces from stone and marble, painted frescoes on plaster, and styled beautiful clothing and jewelry. You can also make a tunic, craft a chain necklace, and entertain family in medieval style
