The town of Windsor

Windsor Village
The Saxons established a settlement on the site, and over a period of time, it grew into a village which was called Windsor. No one knows the original settlement dated, but by the year 1086, about twenty years after the castle had been built, Windsor was a village with a few hundred people. It has since grown into a town with a population of about 29,000 people, but when it was a medieval town, it was likely to have been small and dirty, with daily life dominated by the feudal system. Life under feudalism was tough because health care systems were rudimentary and the importance of hygiene had not yet been understood. So people likely got sick frequently and medicines couldn't help them much. Laws were strict, and people were severely punished for criminal activity. There were probably years where food was scarce, so life would have been very hard.
