On hearing an announcement of a 45-minute tour of the highlights of the medieval gallery I went right along, and sketched while Jenny brilliantly explained living conditions, the evolution of armour, what people ate, diseases, and the transition from medieval to renaissance. An excellent tour, one of several that happen every day.
|A typical house about 1100; it would have had quite a bit of space (mud!) around it|
|A chance to look more closely at Old St Pauls, which took more than 200 years to build|
|Cooking and eating around 1400-1500 - note the bone handled knife in the centre|
|More drawing, however hasty, and fewer notes|
