Medieval Times were an exciting time, filled with miseries for the people but filled with riches and luxury for those in power. But then again, the more things change the more they stay the same, because even to this day, the rich lives a great life reserved only for the gods, while the people suffer to make ends meet.
So Let's See About The Medieval Times, Shall We:
2.) The contraceptive of choice back in the Dark Ages? Sheep dung... I shall not elaborate further on this one.
3.) To brush one's teeth, burnt rosemary was placed on a cloth and then one would scrub their teeth with it. People desperately tried to keep their teeth since tooth extraction was extremely painful what with no anesthetic and all
4.) People believed that diseases were spread by foul odors.
5.) Unlike WoW today, women were barred from joining a guild.
6.) Disease was believed to be the consequence of sin.
7.) The lance received its name from the legendary Sir Lancelot. (I wonder if his name had been Sir Lancelittle, would they still have named a battle weapon after him??)
8.) The elements of the Universe were considered to be water, air, fire, and earth. These elements directly corresponded to the body, so the elements were thus linked; phlem-water, blood-air, yellow bile-fire, and earth-black bile. The bodily elements were called humors.
9.) The term "Coup de Grace" comes from the death blow given to an opponent in jousting.
10.) Pilgrimages were more often made to cure ailments than for spiritual fortification.
11.) Before becoming a knight, one had to serve at least 7 years as a page and an additional 7 as a squire.
12.) Scientific achievements in Medieval times may seem laughable at times, but the fact is that many commonly used appliances and tools today came from this time period: the pump, the hydrostatic balance, the pendulum, the sector, the thermometer, the telescope, and the lodestone.
13.) Cobwebs were believed to cure warts.
