A multitude of settings and socioeconomic backgrounds are presented, from urban life to country life, from upper-class to peasant-class, to paint a full portrait of the different kinds of existence of people of this culture.
Recipes, profiles of actual individuals, and over 40 illustrations help bring the period to life.
