The Ties that Bound

Peasant Families in Medieval England

Barbara A. Hanawalt

  • A richly detailed account offers an intimate view of everyday life in Medieval England
  • Argues that the biological needs served by the family do not change and that the ways fourteenth- and fifteenth-century peasants coped with such problems as providing for the newborn and the aged, controlling premarital sex, and alleviating the harshness of their material environment in many ways correspond with our twentieth-century solutions
