Structure of the Social Classes in Medieval Society. From Homeschool in the Woods' "Passport to the Middle Ages". Student work Lift-the-Flap :)
The poorer people lived mostly on pottage which was a broth or stock in which Chopped meat and vegatables were boiled with herbs and often pulses added. Most people in Medieval England had to make their own food. There were food shops in the towns but most people were peasants who lived in villages where these did not exist . If a villager, you provided for yourself and family and farming was a way of life.
