Factual Question

What is a pilgrimage?

How did people travel during the Medieval Times?

Activity One - Causes of Travel

It is important to have a look at why and how people traveled in the Medieval Times as they were not as isolated or 'cut off' from other areas as we might believe. We will be completing Activities Two and Three (below) after we have come back from the Medieval Journeys trip in May/June. Before we go on the trip though we need to look at how people traveled in the Middle Ages and why they would go on such hard journeys. To do this we are going to use the 'Contrast and Connections' textbook pages 102 - 107. Answer all the questions in the yellow and blue boxes.
