Home life

  • If you ever decide that you would like to come and move here, you could live in one of the huts in the background.
  • The woman usually stays home and cooks, cleans, takes care of children and health. Food is sold for extra money inside the house.
  • Children who get old enough to work, help around on the farm and with their mothers
  • Men, you are expected to work all day, whether at the fields or in a job.

School Life

  • Many towns have sprouted with grammar schools for young children to attend, however, once they reach a certain age, school is no longer the priority, work is.
  • Usually, education was preserved for the rich and royal while common people or peasants worked the land
  • Some schools in the area are small and just getting started so you won't see much kids there.
