There are many differences and similarities between the peasants and nobles. I would not choose to be a peasant in the middle ages because they have raggedy clothing, they have small houses (with no windows), and they stay outside the whole day farming just so they have food to eat. I would rather live to be a noble. All they have to do is decide if people are doing their job right, wear the fanciest of clothing, and go home to a giant castle with all the food they could eat!
Lived in huts made of straw
The floor was the earth
No windows, just one door
Dark and dusty huts
Could live on a small manor of 300 acres with 15 peasant families to work and share the land with
Could live on a big manor with several thousand acres and 50 peasant families to work and share the land with
Lived in a castle or stone house
Their house/ castle was very strong and sturdy (indestructible)
Found on hill tops usually by river bends
surrounded by a moat
Had a lowering and raising gate into the structure over the moat
The Middle Ages
Peasants and nobles in the middle ages were very different from each other. Peasants lived a life of working hard to get things, while nobles were gave what they wanted. Peasants had to farm and work all day to get food for their families. Then after a long day they had a poor house with uncomfortable furniture to sleep in. On the other hand, nobles took care of business, and went home to a castle with the finest of furniture. If you ask me, I'd rather live in the middle ages as a noble. They basically had a worry free life!
