Farmers were able to grow crops because the land was protected by the lord, his knights and retainers… is this a correct depiction of that time? I have to read Medieval history, otherwise my knowledge is fragmented and it gives me one impression – dark! Well, that is quite opposite to this series of stamps.

中世の農民は、領主が雇った騎士が土地を守っていたから農業に専念して食料を生産でき、人口も増えた。←これは正しい中世の描写でしょうか?映画や小説で、断片的に知っている中世の物語からは、ただ暗黒!という印象が。。。この切手シリーズと違いすぎるんじゃ?ちゃんと勉強しよう。
