The yard of a medieval artisan
Gintautas Vėlius | 2018 january 30 d. 09:05

In the 13th and 14th century, artisans and merchants used to
build their homes in the safe neighbourhood of the main
castle mounds. More numerous communities of artisans
represented a new object in the social landscape because
they were not typical in the earlier society of husbandmen
and cattle raisers. Quarters inhabited by artisans and their
families stretched next to the main political and
administrative centres – the castles where dukes resided
together with the people constituting their closest
environment. Artisans worked to meet the demands of the
ducal court. Supposedly, they would sell part of their
products or exchange them for daily bread.
