Daily life in the 12th Century.

This set of articles is intended to be a scholarly (ie reference your sources) guide to the daily particulars of life in an interesting historical century, particularly in the area of England and France because these are easier to research. This is mostly aimed at describing the daily aspects of life (when you ate, how you went shopping, how much it cost, what you did for fun, etc), rather than the grand historical events (although some of these will be needed to be linked to as background too).
