1st Answer : The wealthy nobles often watched tournements faught by knights. They were once just fought for practice, but slowly developed into a sort of sporting event, as knights got richer. 2nd Answer : I don't know how often people went to tournaments, but my guess is that it was… not often. People who could afford it also hunted, sometimes with hawks, or with dogs, and this included both men and women. Anyone, rich or poor, could sing, and people gathered in places to do this. In fact Gerald of Wales said people of that country always sang when they got together, and not as they did in the rest of the world, with one voice, but in many voices, as many as there were people. Some people loved reading. Henry I of England and his wife, Edith of Scotland, are both recorded to have loved reading. Enough people loved reading poetry that Christine de Pizan was able to support her family by writing it. Some enjoyed philosophical debate, and Christine de Pizan did this too, entering into a famous literary argument over the status of women in society. Some people went on pilgrimages. Margery Kempe, a middle class medieval woman without wealth, traveled a good deal more than many people do today. There were counts and kings who were also troubadours. There were many different sports people played. Some of these must have been spectacular Dancing was popular. Some people went out and had a few drinks with their friends. A few people spent extra time in church. Some of these may have been doing penance for the trouble they got into having a few drinks with their friends. Theater was always important. Some people composed music as a hobby. Hildegard of Bingen comes to mind. There was a lot of story telling, and it could be done any time, any place. A few people had nice gardens just for the enjoyment of it. There are links below to related questions. People who were married would have romantic evenings or sex. (MORE)
The medieval times also known as the middle ages started in 476 as a result of the fall of the western Roman Empire. 410 AD with the fall of the Roman empire. 476 AD might be the best date to use. There are different views on this. Nearly all historians use dates ranging from 400 AD to 500 AD. …These two are convenient dates for the beginning, that are picked as approximation. Some historians use the date 395, which was the date of the last division of the Roman Empire. Some use 410, which was a date the city or Rome was sacked for the first time in 800 years. It was also sacked in 455. Most use 476, which is the date the last Emperor of the West Roman Empire abdicated in favor of the Emperor of the East Roman Emperor, but it is referred to as the date of the "fall of Rome." This is a doubly convenient date because the East Roman Empire lasted nearly another thousand years, and finally fell in 1453, a date used commonly for the end of the Middle Ages. Current Historians refer to it as the Byzantine Empire during this time, but I have no doubt the people of that time would have been puzzled by the name. But the important thing is that the middle ages began with the collapse of the authority of the government of the West Roman Empire. And the problem is that this was a long, drawn out process that began about 235 AD and was still underway in about 550 AD. An alternate view There are places where the term Middle Ages has historically been used to name the time between the Dark Ages (also called Early Middle Ages) and the Renaissance, and that usage continues. I was raised with the idea that the Dark Ages ran from 476 to 1000, and the Middle Ages were from 1000 to 1453. The immediately above reflects the newer usage I learned later, when I was in college in the 1960s. More As to when the Middle Ages began in some particular place, such as Rome, or Cardiff, or Scotland, the Middle Ages are thought of as being more a range of dates in European history, rather than a set of conditions. So the date for the beginning of the Middle Ages applies to the whole of Europe; it is just a convenient date for purposes of studying history, and not a date when everything changed from one situation to another. We can talk of the Middle Ages as beginning with the fall of the Roman Empire, and say the Byzantine Empire was medieval. But the Byzantine Empire was legally the same as the East Roman Empire; its laws were changed over time but it did not finally fall until 1453, a date conveniently used for the end of the Middle Ages. On the other hand, for such things as the Japanese Middle Ages or the Aztec Middle Ages, the dates are entirely different as they apply to times in those cultures when they had some specific similarity to the European Middle Ages.

i'd say the one that didn't run into a fight and used his head when he did fight
Historians generally have the Middle Ages start in 476 AD with what is called the fall of Rome. This is a date of convenience, especially since Rome did not fall in 476. What happened that year was the abdication of the last emperor of the Western Roman Empire, a six year old boy named Romulus. An a…pplication was made to the Roman Emperor of the East to take over the whole Roman Empire and reunite it. There are other dates proposed. One is the date of the accession of Justin I as emperor of the East Roman Empire in 518 AD. And another is 410, when Rome was sacked for the first time in centuries. Another view is that the Middle Ages started in 1000 AD, with the period of 476 to 1000 being the Dark Ages; this view is falling out of favor because it is based on misconceptions about the nature of the time. In fact, if you look up "Dark Ages" in Wikipedia, you find an article about the usage of the term, not the time period. If I could change the way things are labeled, I would probably date the Middle ages from the establishment of Christianity as a state religion in 380 AD, because the nature of the Middle Ages reflected, more than anything else, the influence of the Church.

Medieval theatre had its roots in dramatic presentations ofbiblical stories as part of liturgical celebrations. Cooperativesecular storytelling also contributed certain stylistic aspects.
The medieval times were the Middle Ages. The two mean the same thing. The Middle Ages was a period from about the 5th century (476 is one date given) to the the middle of the 15th century (1453 and 1492 are commonly given).

This is a time that spans a 1000 years of history from 410 AD with the fall of Rome to the age of exploring. It is a time of death, of no learning, of trying to stay alive the best way a person could. The barbarian tribes raided and enslaved people at will. They demanded tribute from people or would… kill them. The middle ages is a time where Europe was a patchwork of holdings by strong men and 90% of the people lived in huts made of wattle and daub and had no say in how they lived. It is a time of war, death, destruction, and disease. When Rome fell so did any government or services. Knights were more like "wiseguys" than "good guys" and they carried out the wishes of the strong noble lord they served. It was a time of feudalism that benefited the wealthy and made the poor work, fight wars, and die. (MORE)

We do not know when the first medieval guilds started, but it was early on, certainly before the end of the 9th century. There is some reason to believe that some of the guilds, such as stone cutters' and glass makers' guilds, had continued to exist from ancient Rome. There is a link below.
The middle ages started with wars, so medieval warfare started when the middle ages started. You could pick any date you like best for this, 400, 410, 476, 500, or some other date of the time. There were always wars.
Answers may differ as opinions differ, but many regard the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476 as the start, and the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire in 1453 as the end.
The medieval times date from the 5th century ( fall of the western roman empire) to the 16th century in the beginning of the early modern period.
The Middle Ages, or medieval times, are given different dates by different historians. In the UK, many people use the dates 1066 to 1500, or something like similar, and called the preceding 500 years or so the Dark Ages. In many other parts of the world, the term Dark Ages has gone out of fash…ion, and that period is called the Early Middle Ages. By this thinking, the Middle Ages lasted about a thousand years, from 476 to 1492, or 400 to 1400, or 500 to 1500. (MORE)
There is not much history of theater in the early years of the Middle Ages, but that does not mean they did not exist. We know that Empress Theodora had been an actress prior to her marriage to Justinian. And indications are that the early theater in Western Europe was derived at least in part from …Roman pagan times, which would tend to indicate an ongoing tradition there as well. (MORE)

Fashion in Russia, unlike fashion in most Western Europeancountries, was not dictated entirely by the appearance of theclothing.

Any answer to this question would be a guess and an opinion, but it probably deserves to be answered. My own guess is that the people who had the best time were the women of Tortosa, Spain, who were members of the Orden del Hacha, or Order of the Hatchet, a knightly order created by Count Raymond …Berengar IV of Barcelona in 1149. The story behind this is that the count, with his army, besieged Tortosa and took it from its Muslim overlords in 1148. Soon after, the count's army was called away urgently to fight elsewhere, taking the fighting men of the city with them. And very soon after that, the previous ruler returned with an army and started his own siege of the city to get it back. At this point, the women of Tortosa dressed themselves in men's' clothes, armed themselves with hatchets, kitchen knives, and anything else they could find, and attacked the enemy army in the night, defeating it soundly enough that it was driven off and never returned. Out of gratitude and admiration, the count created an order of knights to which all these women were admitted. The reason I pick these women is that they were ordinary people, women with no high status, mostly no education, and no great expectations, but they were suddenly given a new place in society, in which they were exempt from all taxes, took precedence over common men when speaking at assemblies, were given honored places in processions and parades, and were treated with all the honors of knighthood because they were, in fact, knights. They could walk through the city, heads held high, knowing they were considered heroes and were respected by all who met them, and would be so for the rest of their lives. There is unfortunately no Wikipedia article on the Order of the Hatchet in English. I have provided a link to the Spanish article below. (MORE)
It began in 410 AD with the fall of the Roman Empire and lasted a 1000 years.
When Rome fell in 410 AD a gap was left in the structure of government and services. The barbarian tribes raided without care and killed where they wanted. There was no one to protect the people and it was pure chaos. Fedualism developed out this when strong men came with armies to beat back the bar…barians and to take control. The armies were a little less brutal than the barbarians and were more like "wiseguys" or the mob in controlling whole areas. The people who lived through this were just glad to have protection and to be able to grow crops and take care of their animals without fear. (MORE)

Very roughly the middle ages were from 500 C.E. to 1500 C.E. Sometimes individual will try to pin the start and end dates to specific events, such as the deposition of the last Roman emperor Romulus Augustus in 476 or the fall of Constantinople in 1453, but these division are somewhat artificial. T…he middle ages can be further divided into the Early Middle ages (500-1000 CE) the High Middle ages (1000-1300 CE) and the late middle ages (1300 to 1500 CE). Just as with the start and end dates, the dates of these division are somewhat artificial, and are best seen as general benchmarks of overall social trends, rather than hard, specific dates. (MORE)
