What was life like in the castle? How did the knight get into his armour and what did he eat? Let's go on a discovery tour.
The Middle Ages and the life of the knights in the castle are still topics in films and books today. But what were the Middle Ages really like? How did the knight get into his armour and what are the names of the craftsmen who made the armour? What food was cooked and how did people pass the time?
In this short lecture we will go on a discovery tour. Participation is expressly permitted, but not a prerequisite for participation.
Afterwards we will make a little knight.
