WARNING!!!

DO NOT TRAVEL BACK IN TIME

Ten reasons not to go back in the Middle Ages

  1. A knight’s armor is very hard to put on, and if a castle is being sieged, it could cost you your life. It would take forever to put on the armor. So wearing armor was a death sentence.(Gravett)

2. If we went back into time, it would be very unhygienic. People would never brush their teeth or sometimes take a shower. When they took a shower, they bathed in a dirty wooden barrel.

3. Some knights are flag carriers, and are usually the first ones killed. We would want to be very alive and not take the death.
4. Weapons carried into battle, were very heavy (along with armor). So you would be very slow and it would be hard to move.
(Gravett)
5. Children worthy of being knights, were taken away from their family at seven years old, and taken to their uncle, or noble’s house to be trained.

6. Most people were very poorly treated most people in the castles even nobles slept on portable mattress. In the castle only kings queens and very high nobles had rooms. So others never had their own rooms much less comfy beds. And that's for kings and high servants imagine everything else in the town and city.
7. Peasants had to grow their own crops and livestock and they had to give most of it to their lord to pay for the land and houses that they rent from their lord’s manor. Peasants also worked several long, hard days in their Lord’s fields to pay for land and houses as well.
Most people had to travel by foot, but they sometimes traveled by horses, mules, or cart.

8. Most people had to travel by foot, but they sometimes traveled by horses, mules, or cart. Sometimes, people could travel over water as well, but not very often. Originally, some towns and cities had roads, but most of them eventually worn away until they were just muddy trails.

9. If we went back into time, it would be very painful. If you got to get a tooth out, the doctor wouldn’t use anesthetic (pain reliever). For it was painful and excruciating.
(Medieval Hygiene)
10. Unless you are used to moving a lot you would be left. You would have had to move a lot. Most of the time you would would spend 1 month at a castle at max before moving.
