Before our call with Maciek, we did some reading and talking about Medieval times, so that we had a basic understanding. Maciek then brought the period to life for us, with a brief talk about some interesting aspects of life at that time.
He referred to a map of Europe quite frequently, as he explained what came before the Middle Ages, and the conquests that took place during the period - with special mentions for the Vikings and Normans.
We were so grateful to him, particularly for his patience in answering all of our questions! At first, we were a little shy, but once we got going, we had an endless supply of questions!
Thank you so much, Maciek, for sharing some of your knowledge with us. No doubt, we will be in touch with you again later in the year. We are so lucky to have an expert parent in our midst!
