Fourteenth Century Dinner

Active selection:    
Fourteenth Century Dinner.  The illustration on the right, taken from an old manuscript, shows the cook and butcher at their work.  Note the adjustable crane from which the cooking pot hangs.  Below we see a typical dinner in a rich man's house in the 14th century.  A cloth covers the table for the owner of the house, his family and friends, while the more ordinary folk are seated at a bare table to one side.  Dogs were invariably present, seeking warmth from the fire in the centre of the room and scraps that might fall from the servants' trays or be tossed by their masters.  Music was also an essential part of the entertainment.  Original artwork for illustration on p24 of Look and Learn issue no 707 (2 August 1975).
