The Crafty Middle Ages

From Sunday 18:00 until Sunday 18:30 (30 Minutes)

Participants: Gillian Polack

Dr Gillian Polack leads us through some of the crafts that created comfort and entertainment in France and England in the Middle Ages. The talk will cover crafts from manuscripts to hornwork. Alchemy may well make an appearance. There won’t be time for practical demonstrations, but anyone wishing to try certain crafts at home might want to start collecting their urine. Most of this presentation will be PC. A small segment will be downright vulgar.


Venues:
Argyle Room
