Description
This fascinating book tells how our ancestors kept themselves clean, warm and well-fed. The author visited over 100 houses of every sort: mansions, farmhouses, medieval manors, and townhouses to gather details on the history of the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, as well as the bakehouse, the brewery, the lamp room, larder, and still-room. Lively, engaging, and illustrated throughout with unusual photographs.
