A Walk in the Garden (Medieval, that is)

Today’s post on the English Historical Fiction Authors’ website is about medieval gardens. For me the most telling comment came right at the start – ‘The medieval world was a quiet place’ What a refreshing change from our own hectic world that would be. But was it? Or only the gardens – in which peace can still be found?

I’d love to know what others think about the relative noise or otherwise of medieval times AND Where do you go to find p+q.
