I am curious to know how people, especially elderly people, used to spend their time in the past.
Did they work until their death?
It would also be interesting how these were different concerning social classes. I would think that leisure activities were more or less non-existent in the lower classes since they needed to work all the time to survive, or am I missing something?
Did people, once too old to work, just read or do other stuff until they died or did they work until the end. Or a combination of both.
