6:00 AM - Roosters would wake most villagers up. At this time, most peasants
started they daily activities normally by dressing and eating breakfast. A
peasant's breakfast consisted of mostly vegetables, water, fruits and bread.

7:00 AM - The castle's bells would ring (if any) and serfs were required to
start work at this time.In winter, peasants were most likely to wake up until
8 AM.

8:00 AM - Work continued, There were not many interludes for serfs; in the
other hand, free peasants; could have many breaks.

9:00 AM - Work for serfs continued; they were not allowed to drink or eat
anything in the farms, but nevertheless; most of them managed to contraband
goods such as water. Peasants would farm a lot as well, but serfs were the
true workers.

10:00 AM - The first interlude for serfs. When a noble was generous, he'd let
the serfs rest for up to half an hour at this time. Draconian nobles would
impose rules against resting.

11:00 AM - Labor was at its peak. Peasants were required to work and work at
this time. In the interim, nobles were usually riding their horses or taking
care of business. Most nobles would live out of the work of their serfs.

12:00 AM - Serfs continued working.

1:00 PM - Serfs would be normally given a time-off at this time since the sun
would burn them otherwise. Farms were very hot places in which the sun was
strong enough to make very painful burns. Serfs usually died at an early
age--we can deduce that cancer had a lot to do with that (but we can't be sure).

2:00 PM - Work at farms continued. Children were usually playing in the
gardens or farming as well. Their mothers spent a great amount of time at
home--preparing food, teaching their kids new knowledge and doing house-work.
Nevertheless, a women could also be a serf; thus some of them worked many
hours at the farms.

3:00 PM - Work continued.

4:00 PM - This was the official resting time. Nobles would normally have
glorious feasts with more food than a serf would see in a month. Serfs usually
ate bread, vegetables and water. Under good circumstances, they had meat
(usually in holidays).

5:00 PM - Serfs were required to return to work.

6:00 PM - Work continued.

7:00 PM - Work for serfs continued.

8:00 PM - Labor usually finished for the day. Serfs were paid a very small
amount of money; from which, they were required to pay a lot of taxes.

9:00 PM - Serf's dinner.

10:00 PM - Serfs would often go to sleep at this time. In the meantime, at the
castle, nobles would be having another feast. Dinner was their favorite meal
and castles were full of servants to provide nobles with whatever they wanted.
