Most history books contain information about men, but that is only half the story. This book describes how women in medieval times began to find ways of living their lives outside the traditional family, often within the church as nuns, or on the fringes of society as entertainers. It provides quotes from found pieces of writing and case studies of famous women as well as photographs of ancient artefacts, prints, manuscripts and artworks.
