Cynric says:

"Like it or not, the chief occupation throughout the middle ages was war."  

Not quite. For the upper portion of medieval society, perhaps. But they
were smaller in numbers than the other two estates. The majority of people
were peasants. Their chief occupation was raising and harvesting food. 

They were highly affected by war, but it was not their chief occupation.

In both the SCA and period, the armed combatants get far more attention
than their numbers would suggest.
