wee, sleekit, timorous, cowering beasties....

via paulakate and coffeeem, a short film about life in a medieval village.



...although I do wonder that the seasons appear to be running backwards...

oh COOL! thanks
Fascinating! Thank you; that's an excellent short film. I think the seasons went around correctly; they just started off in the Fall (not sure why... I would assume the Psalter would go in order of the Christian liturgical year).

Yep. It's in order, starting in Autumn, a little before the beginning of the Liturgical year which starts with Advent (in 14th century England this would have been the Catholic Roman Rite year).

You can check out the original here it's in the British Library.
I think I must have missed winter, then.

Ahh, there it is. Must have come up when I was letting the dog out.

Oh, thanks for this. Our grade 5s do a major unit on Medieval life every year, so I shall share this link with those teachers, in case they haven't seen it yet. :D
Beautiful cinematography!
Movie is lovely, the only thing is I kept thinking of the Monty Python Holy Grail dialog:
"Ah, he must be a king."
"'Ow d'ye know he's a king?"
"'E 'asn't got shit all over him."

this was a very very CLEAN medieval village!
And one with a church-time and monastery deficiency.
