Medieval Farming

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for reading my first post. :)

I am creating a game for simulating a medieval farm(s) from the perspective of a minor lord running a manor. I am trying to determine the following:

1. Monetary expenses normally attributed to running a farm(s). This might include:

* Farming Equipment

* Repairs to Equipment

* Transportation Costs or asset purchases (Wagons) for moving produce to the market

* Normal Loss - Weather, thieves (not sure if thieves ever tried to steal farm goods going to market..maybe hungry thieves!)

* Taxes (an average say from ~1100 A.D. -1400 A.D.)

- If I am leaving any common expenses out please feel free to add it.

2. Common Revenues associated with running a farm. This might include:

* Rents

* Portions of Produce given to the Lords

3. Common Sizes of Fields

4. Number of workers assigned to a field

thanks for any info!!

Peter

John,

I had originally found that page, which was what led me to this forum. ;)

The problem was that there is a broken link on the following page:

http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/YALDmedievalC.htm

Under Lesson 1:

Lesson 1: For this lesson the pupils will also need the Family Information Chart, Village of Yalding, Kent in the 14th Century, Map of Yalding in 1336, Artist Impression of Yalding, Medieval Names and the Yalding Manor Records. One way of using the material is to give each pupil the name of an individual that lived in the village in the 14th century. In this way the pupils can explore the possible impact of different events on one particular family. This has been a very successful aspect of the course but I am aware that some teachers might feel uncomfortable about this approach. Although I will provide the information needed for this strategy, the materials do not have to be used in this way.

The link to "Yalding Manor Records" is laid out as YALDManorR.htm when in fact it should be YALDINGManorR.htm. This led me to believe that the page didnt exist. It's only when you pointed me to the main page, that I discovered that the Manor Records page did in fact exist.

This is an enormous boon for me! Thanks for your help.

Peter,

If and when you design this game, please report it to the forum. If it is a game that can work in one to two class periods, I would love to use it in my Humanities class for when I cover the Middle Ages. I have only a brief time to cover the Middle Ages and then I have to jump to the Renaissance!
