Description
The author thoroughly investigated all types of properties from great mansions and medieval castles to Victorian town houses and humble farmhouses

How did our ancestors cook, wash, brew, bake and even keep things clean before the emergence of modern domestic appliances? In a world with the supermarket up the road, where running water and central heating are accepted as commonplace, it is hard to imagine how households were run in the days before these things existed.

Having squirmed through drains, poked into sculleries and cellars, clambered into icehouses and up chimneys of many National Trust buildings, Christina Hardyment has conducted a fascinating quest into the history of housekeeping.
