Fleeing to the Countryside • Out of fear of barbarian attacks people left the cities and attached themselves to powerful warlords in the countryside. In exchange for their protection the people agreed to work for the these lords becoming peasant farmers (serfs).

• The manor was largely self sufficient, that is the peasant serfs produced nearly everything that was needed, from food, clothing and furniture. • The manor usually consisted of several small huts, a wind or water mill to grind wheat, a church, the manor house and several small strips of farming land.
