Hello, sorry for double posting this but I posted it over in the YA Critique group I think by accident.
I have a story where 5 individuals will be dropped into a place in ancient times.
Since the characters have no working knowledge of the customs can the writer describe why things are happening.
The town is having a festival. The party does not know why, so can you put into the scene that the King had declared a holiday even though no one has told the party that.
If they are on a boat going down a canal, the writer can describe how big you they see the canal it but could you explain why it was so big?
Thank you in advance for all of your help with this neophyte along the way.
