Medieval farming. Whole folio (page) and border illustrations from the 14th-century Luttrell Psalter showing an agricultural scene with text from Psalm 94 (top) and Psalm 95 (bottom). The initial 'C' for Psalm 95 shows three laymen singing from a roll of music. Three grotesques are shown in the border. At bottom, a peasant farmer and his wife are using mallets to break up clods of earth in a field to aid crop growth. The Luttrell Psalter is an illuminated manuscript that was produced in East Anglia, England, and dates from around the period 1325-1335. The text is in Latin, while the marginal illustrations show saints, Bible stories and everyday rural life.
