Based on a fantasy setting based on medieval period like 500-1500 AD or something and probably set in the same time-frame of Lord of the Rings I need to know: -What do people do fun? Other than dueling, hunting, etc.? Other than 'tag' and 'hide-and-seek'? Obviously I researched quite a bit and found some possible library books here, http://historymedren.about.com/od/dailylifesociety/tp/dailylife.htm Basically I need to know the -Best library books about daily life in medieval times? -Best library books about daily life and interests of peasant girls/women living in villages or towns? -What boys and girls, men and women did for fun/games? Are there any popular, interesting professions other than herbalism, hunting, farming, etc? I know woodcutting, carpenting, smithing are popular professions in village life and most villagers were skilled in those areas. Also know about skinning and leather-working. What would a sixteen-year-old 'tomboy' girl aspire to be? (shes one of my main characters). I have these choices so far: -Tailoring or knitting? Skinning or leatherworking? She's too impatient to be interested in reading and writing. -If it helps in my setting women are kinda equal to men. In medieval time women were treated like property.
