What Games did Kids back then Play?

Historians don’t have much evidence about toys and games from the 12th century in England, or anywhere else. Archeologists have not found many games buried with children. Writers of the period rarely mention games. Painters of manuscripts (illuminators) do show a few games being played by adults.
Children between 6 and 13 spent most of their time outdoors. And during the day, between chores, they would have played simple games like tag, roll the hoop, and run races. The modern games we play with balls were not invented yet, though they may have had team sports that we do not now. In the evenings, they would have played the same board games as the adults. For a list of these board games, read “The Games Treasury.” by Merilyn Mohr. New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.
