Medieval Themed Hobbies

I guess it is very useful.

Cheyanne Murray

These are not to be confused with medieval themed occupations, this one is a list of hobbies your characters might enjoy on free time.  
“But, Cheyanne,” You say, “Medieval people lived in a primitive time and did not have free time.”  Well, according to this article, the average American works more hours than a medieval peasant ever did. Citing the article, “records from 13th century England show many families only worked 150 days a year on their land.” So there were days off work. On top of religious days, medieval peasants also had to build their lives around daylight hours, growing season, and even the weather.
So yes, in short, medieval peasants did indeed have free time. To help fellow writers out, I came up with a quick list. All these just came off the top of my head, so I apologise if a few are not historically accurate.
