"Hello, my name is Kitty Redhead.

I'm just finishing carrying these buckets of milk up to the Manor House. I'm a villein, you see, and this morning just as I was going to take my dough up to Ken the Baker's so that he could bake it for me the Reeve turned up on my doorstep and told me I had to take milk from the dairy up to the Manor for the Lord. As if I didn't have enough work of my own to do.

Anyway, now you are here I will show you around my village and tell you a little about it."
