Life was ok in the middle ages everyone did their fair share of work and all had houses to live in. They all had different jobs but it all added up and got paid for their work. Crime was different depending on what you had done and was fair but not that civilized. The entertainment was good and there was plenty to do even though only rich people were allowed to take part in games like jousting and Archery. My opinion is that not everything was as great as it could have been for example having your hands cut off but overall I think the middle ages was quite civilized.

The Anglo-Saxons probably thought they were civilized. The Romanized Britons, whose lands they invaded, thought they were not.

Why was the Middle Ages known as barbaric?

"Barbaric" is a term that has been romanticised to infer the primitive and brutal nature of life and warfare during the Middle Ages (ca. 5th to 15th centuries) The term can also relate the the loosely coined "Barbarians", which was given to tribes and people outside the Roman Empire prior to the onset of the Middle Ages. As the rapid expansion of the Roman Empire and the influx of foreigners (i.e. barbarians) into the Roman lands were responsible for the demise of the the Empire, it could be another reason why the Middle Ages are labelled as 'barbaric'. It is however, not appropriate to label the entire Middle Ages period as barbaric as there very many discoveries and occurrences during this time that were very civilised and eminent and far from the stereotypical and contemporary definition of barbaric.
