Housing

The wealthy people lived in housing made out of stone.Well the peasants not so much.In the early Renaissance peasants lived in cottages made out of sticks and straws with one room.Later after the black death peasants housing where upgraded to two rooms and they were made by first constructing a framework of timber, then filling in the spaces with wattle (woven twigs). Finally, the twigs were daubed with mud which, when dried, made a hard wall.

My Experience from the Renaissance Festival

It was fun! I saw a lot of things.I went sword fighting with my friends.We saw how glass was made.We also saw a lot of great costumes and a lot of swords and wands.I saw a man that was crazy for a circle.I think that was his property.After all that we sat down in a very peaceful place and talked.Then we went to the entranced to go back to school.It was the best field trip ever.
