Some of the background information is that there was a great tragedy of some sort "The Great Burning".  You can assume that it was a war or natural disaster that leaves man in a more primitive time.  Another point of background information is that the main character's father is a priest, a wiseman, and not a hunter, and he expects the main character to become a priest one day, too.
