Riassunto: This vivid picture of how children lived and died portrays childhood at all levels of European mediaeval society - from the peasant girl who longed to read, to the apprentice scribe doodling pictures in the margins of the manuscript he copied, to the future Duke of Berry whose bedroom was redecorated twice a year, changing at Easter from red to green, the colour of Spring. The authors consider children's in the family and in social institutions, their emotional and educational environment, and their symbolism in Christianity. They demonstrate that, despite often difficult living conditions, the great majority of children were surrounded by family affection. They also illustrate the misery of orphaned and abandoned children, the ravages of disease and war, and the exploitation of children as slaves and beggars.

Sinossi: Numerous historic sources survive from Late Antiquity through to the late medieval period concerning children, from letters and educational tracts to archaeological finds and artistic representations. This very readable account examines all aspects of childhood, including mothers, birth, education, disease and burial, often drawing on specific cases. The children studied include aristocratic children, working children or slaves, and abused children. The legal position of children in society, such as the rights of bastards or protection for child brides, is considered as is the role of the church in the education of children.
