Medieval Millennials in 13th century Paris

The course will focus on the understanding of medieval everyday in the life of a twenty year old in Paris, home to royalty, charlatans, Knights, merchants, clerics, prostitutes, gamblers, students, and beggars. We will visit Europe’s largest, most cosmopolitan city, and investigate the private lives of people within their homes to see how people actually dressed, ate, washed, slept, loved, worked, fought, worshipped, and dance and play.
