Hortus Deliciarum. 1185. Hohenburg Abbey, France

The medieval city was seen as a crowded, bustling place, with people, horses, carts and wagons all moving around. Just as in our modern city, this would all lead to inevitable traffic problems.

While perhaps people in the Middle Ages didnt need to worry about monkeys driving carts, there plenty of other traffic problems they had to contend with. From British Library Additional 42130
