"Life in a Medieval City" is an educational nonfiction book. It covers all aspects of city life in the 12th and 13th centuries in Europe. The focus is mainly on what life was like in Troyes, France, but the authors also compare Troyes to various other European cities.

The book covers what a burgher's home was like, what life was like for the housewife, childbirth and children, weddings and funerals, small and large businesses, the doctor, the church, the cathedral, schools and scholars, books and authors (and poets), theater, disasters (including flood, famine, plagues, and war), how the town government worked, and the Champagne Fairs held in Troyes and other towns.

For students, researchers, and history lovers, a look at day-to-day life in a rarely explored era. "About life and death, midwives and funerals, business, books and authors, and town government."-Choice
