Review: Women in the Middle Ages

User Review  - Goodreads

eric gave me this book some time ago. It gives a brighter picture for Middle Ages women than I had imagined. They had more rights than I realized and apparently there were many ways around the limits set on them. I liked the women whose lifes come alive in this book Read full review

About the author (1980)

Joseph Gies was born on October 8, 1916 in Ann Arbor, Mich and attended the University of Michigan and Columbia University. He held jobs with several publishers including Encyclopaedia Britannica, and was editor-in-chief for a division of Doubleday. Gies is best known for several books, such as Life in a Medieval Castle, Life in a Medieval City, and Life in a Medieval Village. These books, written with his wife Frances Carney, explore existence in Medieval times. The works, and his others, are noted for their highly readable, but thorough quality. Topics such as archaeology, government, dining, entertainment, and daily life are presented in fascinating detail.
