You could say the rat was bad because of all the people that died…. He would force you to work for him and then not pay you. And so life was much much better for the medieval villeins. Without his permission, you couldn’t…. Leave the village. Lived the medieval villeins.
He would force you to work for him and then not pay you
And so life was much much better for the medieval villeins
Without his permission, you couldn’t…
Leave the village
Lived the medieval villeins
And he would own several large houses while the villeins only had one small house.
Most worked as farmers but had hardly any land
The rat started the black death which killed almost half the population!
But then one day everything changed because of a murderer – the rat!
Because there were less people, there was more money, jobs and freedom to go round
The lord of the manor controlled them
Life was hard…
But you could also say it was good because of the happiness it gave to people afterwards.
