The life of a peasant during medieval times
Who were Villeins ?
Villeins were replica of slaves they had to do extra work for the lord at harvest time and had to do extra work for nothing and had to obey the kings orders. What ever they wanted to do outside the manor they had to ask permission from the lord. They spend a few days each week working on the lords land and had to work extra if the lord commands. They worked on the lords land and did not have to pay rent, instead the lord had to pay them.

How many types of peasants were there ?
The term "peasant" is generally known as a description of common folk. More precisely, peasants represent the lowest level in the feudal system of the Middle Ages. Peasants formed part of the means of production. They lived and worked on land that was owned by a lord of the manor.

In the middle ages, there were three types of peasants - slaves, serfs and freemen. The serfs comprised the majority of the peasant population, with limited upward social mobility among them. Some peasants sought the religious life or escaped with the hope of securing a better station in life

The term "peasant" is generally known as a description of common folk. More precisely, peasants represent the lowest level in the feudal system of the Middle Ages. Peasants formed part of the means of production. They lived and worked on land that was owned by a lord of the manor.

In the middle ages, there were two types of peasants - villeins and freemen. The the freemen were men who were more richer than villeins and could do whatever they want, they did not need the lords permission to do anything.

Freemen were people who worked for themselves and for their earning, they made their own clothes and grew their own food. freemen also payed rent to the lord for the amount of land they rented for their earnings. Freemen are called freemen because they are free to do whatever they want, even if they wanted to leave the manor they could according to their wishes. Free men wore good clothing and did not work so much as much as villeins.
during the medieval times castles used to be built for the lords and kings most castles used to have trenches and murderholes inside the castle and on the gate.
Outside the trenches in the gate they used to put ashes,hot water and dead bodies. They used to do this so the attackers could not come and fire in the castle. They also had murrder holes, In the murder holes they used to put alot of dead bodies. This was found as fossils by archeologists.
