Summary:
Travel back in time to learn about life in the Middle Ages! Young actors play lords and vassals in this look at a unique social structure. Witty dialogue, authentic costumes, educational skits and thorough explanations make all the dynamics of feudalism come to life for your students! Discover why much of western Europe was left without a strong centralized government due to the breakdown of the Roman Empire, and how, with little organized resistance, Germanic invaders raided European cities and monasteries. Discuss the reasons why kings were often too weak to repel the invaders, and how many city dwellers moved into the countryside in hopes of greater safety. As a result of these invasions, and a weak central government, a new social and political system known as feudalism developed. Strong local lords formed a strict code of behavior and allegiance which became the foundation of feudal life. Key Skills and Concepts: * Explain the development and subsequent consequences of feudalism * Learn about the rigid class system of the Middle Ages in Europe * Identify cultural ramifications of European history on society today * Discover what life was like for the peasants, vassals and lords.
