Description: Women at Work in Medieval Europe is a spirited look at a slice of history rarely discussed. High-born and low-, women workers abounded in medieval Europe -- running estates and abbeys, working the land in gardens and farms, brewing, baking, cloth-making, conducting international trade, healing, hunting, writing, mining, and engaging in illicit activities. They apprenticed to trades, they were licensed by cities and states, and they identified themselves by the work they did (as surnames like "Webster" and "Brewster" attest to this day).

Organized by profession, the book uses original documents and art to explore the many trades women engaged in at this time, the rewards they attained by their labor, and the dangers they faced.
