Important Dates Charlemagne Dies: 814 Feudalism spreads throughout Western Europe: 1050 The Invaders After Charlemagne died in 814, Germanic custom said that the empire should pass to his son.

A Manor was a self-sufficient agricultural estate run by a lord and worked by peasants and serfs. The manorial system was the most convenient device for organizing the estates of the aristocracy and the clergy in the Middle and it made feudalism possible. The typical western European manor in the 13th century consisted partly of the cottages, huts, and barns and gardens of its peasants, which were usually clustered together to form

a small village. There might also be a church, a mill, and a wine or oil press in the village. Close by was manor house, of the lord, which might be inhabited by him or merely by his steward if the lord happened to hold more than one manor. The village was surrounded by arable land that was divided into three large fields that were farmed in rotation, with one allowed to lie fallow each

year. There were also usually meadows for supplying hay, pastures for livestock, pools and streams for fishing, and forests and waste lands for wood gathering and foraging. Many peasants at this time became serfs. A serf was a peasant who was bound to the land and didnt really own any land of their own. As the population of Europe increased during this time there was less land to go around. Many peasants lost their

holdings and became serfs. Serfs could not leave the manor, they had to work to pay rent, and had to pay fines and fees for various services on the manor. Serfs also could not marry without the Lords permission. In exchange for their labor, the lords of the Manors did owe the serfs protection in the event of invasion. They also were able to keep a percentage of the crops they produced on the manor for their own families. Daily Life of Peasants

Peasants lived a hard-working simple life. They lived in houses which had thatched roofs resting on timber framework with the spaces filled with mud and straw. There were few, if any windows. Many houses only had one to two rooms, there was little privacy. Often their animals slept inside the house with serfs to provide warmth
