(Pictures of medieval life through the seasons, from one of the most famous of medieval illuminated manuscripts. As well as giving accurate contemporary images of life, dress, and the Duke’s castles, many scenes relate to Chaucer’s stories (such as the May scene and the Knight’s Tale). The scenes also contain seasonal astrological images which can be related to the Tales. This late fourteenth-century manuscript is contemporary with the earliest Canterbury Tales manuscripts.)
