Because cooked foods are easier to digest, and can be kept longer than raw foods.

During the Medieval age people had to build fires to cook and keep warm. In the 21st century people have electricity and furnaces to cook and keep them warm. During the Medieval ages windmills, mechanical clocks, and distilled alcohol were discovered or invented. During the 21st century the AbioCor artificial heart, an artificial liver, and self cleaning windows were all invented.

The serfs/ peasants in medieval times did not have spare time. They would work until they were physically exhausted, cook dinner for their families and then sleep on uncomfortable beds until the morning when they would repeat the day before.

Medieval is medieval because it is Latin for "the middle ages".

that depends on how many people are attacking. now, if you had a lot of well-trained knights fighting for you, then maybe not. but if the gates got broken down and you were invaded, everyone probably would fight, including the cook.

I think what children were doing in medieval castles usually depended on the social status of their parents living in those castles. So a child of a cook was supposed not to play with that of the owner of the castle. But depending of their age; the younger a child is, the more ignorend he is about status of his playmate.

Medieval woman was deprived from all human rights including her rights to work, to have her own business, to inherit, to have her choice of her husband, and/or to witness in court. She was looked for as a house property to take care of children, cook, and satisfy her husband desires and requirements.
