Abstract

Medieval cities grew out of civilization. In the beginning, little was known about life and death. With time knowledge was built on these two concepts (life and death). The idea about life and death has been one of the the most important learning cycles in the history of mankind and most medieval cities. As civilisation progressed lifespan decreased, though life comfortability increased. It is said some men lived for 500 years before their death, yet with today’s technological advancement very few could live for even 160 years. However, the technology for long life which was used by early medievalists is being rediscovered.
