    Watching this makes me realize that l am belong to that medieval peasants history. 😁😅 I was born were l don't have a plastic utensils like plates and silver spoon and we used coconut shells instead and ate using our bare hands. Our laddle were made of wood and coconut shells too. Our dress were mostly made of flour sacks too including undergarments using an abaca or banana fiber.😁 We don't have a comfort room like have a nice toilet bowl too 😂 we only used a very deep hole and just covered with a piece of wood and used Toble juice made of plants were no flies and insects wanted to go near it. Insects dies if they do. 😅😁 We had a lot of hanging brown tissues too..🤣😂which is the dried banana leaves and sometimes dried mud in case. 😁😅 We do had a big swimming pool ever which is a river !! And l used to fetch water for nearly 4 hours and l need to dig myself up everytime l fetch a drinking water. I used gabon leaves to make the water fresh and ganit fiber to make it more cleaner and we'll filtered. 😂😁 I used a big bamboo as a gallon way back then too. 😁 And round wood as a wheeler. 🤣 When we catches wild pigs we don't have a fridge too but we used salt only which we made it by ourselves too. 😁 We store the meat using the salt and put it up the highest coconut trees to make it more fresher We don't use a gas stove before too, we used 3 big stones with a firewood with a pot which we made it out of a red mud from the mountain clay.🤣 And about hygen; l used guava twigs as my toothbrush with salt as a toothpaste!!! And l have a perfect teeth atm!! 😁😊 We don't have mouthwash way back then too but we used fresh coconut wine or mostly coconut vinegar without any preservatives. We used to minced and ate fresh and young guava leaves as a mouth freshener,😁 or sometimes oregano leaves but tastes ewwww.lol so l prefer guava leaves instead. And about period; 🤔 we used stitched unused clothing we don't use a twigs as a tampons. Lol😂🤣😁 we used ganit fiber which is so itchy ..so if you're on your period on my times, you can tell it the way she walks and moves. Lol Despite all of that mediaval hardship l am very proud of myself now which is l am one of the health care provider. ☺️ Living in the city we're never sleep. 😁But l miss thus days really.

    1:53 contradicts 4:22 you make the case that peasants because of the amount of work it takes to bath or clean themselves they rarely did but then at the later part say that is was common for peasants to clean themselves?

    And yet, they referred to brown people living in the bush as uncivilized heathens. At least those "heathens" were disease free and hygienic.

    Religious authorities didn’t put shame on menstruation ! Where are you getting your information From?

    Eli Carraway4 hari yang lalu

    It’s infuriating how the church, therefore society used to demonise menstruation. And of course, some cultures still do. Eff you, people - your very existence comes out of the menstrual cycle. You should be blessing it, not condemning women.

    Fair enough but it does get in the way of decent sex once a month and nobody likes a moody mare either.

    The English speaking videos often focus on the medieval Britain and whatnot, but the medieval hygiene standards were actually very different depending on the region's culture in Europe, so we can't really call the standards uniform. For example, the Vikings or Celts were often portrayed as dirty savages by their enemies or those who rewrote history in the later centuries. But in fact they were very careful about their hygiene as the archaeological evidence suggests. They were "too clean" for some cultures they encountered.

    This seemed more like a European thing. Apparently the rest of the world were relatively MUCH more hygienic. Not saying they smelled like roses but Europe was an anomaly, even dogs and pigs are more hygienic than medieval Europeans. Aristocracy and religion seem to blame

    There has been a push in recent years to depict the medieval period in a much softer light. "It wasn't that bad" "The Dark Ages didn't exist" "Peasants were actually pretty clean" Historical revisionism is rampant today, especially on certain IDreporter channels. Thank you for this historically-grounded video. Keep up the good work.

    Wow! First time I've been disappointed by you guys at Weird History. I've studied history and have found all your stuff functional, factual and funny..... oh you were one of my by gone lecturers..... but this time you disappoint, you have given natural therapies, my second Masters degree, a bit of a hard wrap, admittedly, administered by fools in the cases you site but guys..... come on, before chemicals reproductions were developed thatsvwhere we had and used properly with a heathly lifestyle, I am sure you will find have great potential to rise again to replace the all too common crap we put in our bodies in the last 20 life times. How about an episode about natural therapies. But beware because as in all things there are a lot of shisters out there...... Start here ...Saint Hildegard of Bingen, who knows you may learn a thing or too along the way PS How about an episode on Alvin Toflers, Future Shock? Please Keep up the good work Eric☆
