Medieval feast: Bringing the Middle Ages to life

The seventh-grade students at Seven Hills School in Nevada City donned costumes Thursday to celebrate the school’s annual medieval feast, a culmination of three months of study designed to bring the Middle Ages to the modern-day classroom. The feast — now in its 25th year — took place at the Miners Foundry. The school’s four seventh-grade classes spend a quarter delving into all aspects of the Middle Ages, studying the society and its class divisions in detail. Each class transforms into its own kingdom, with students occupying the various roles of the community, including royalty, craft workers and merchants. Students complete several hands-on projects to reinforce their studies, and the unit of study ends with the feast where students, dressed in the clothing of the time period, competed in activities that would have been popular in the Middle Ages, including archery, darts and jousting.
