Toni's course explores the life of medieval women, from the rural housewife to the women trading in the city of London, whether as a reputable silkwoman or as a prostitute. Toni has used a wide range of contemporary sources - such as medieval literature, wills, personal letters, household accounts and legal documents - to uncover what life was really like for ordinary medieval women living in a time when their gender and class virtually determined their lives. Real life examples are given and topics covered include housewifery, childbirth and childcare, food and drink, women with trades, religious attitudes towards women, the impact of the Black Death and Manor Courts, the Sumptuary Laws and fashion, and just how much work a housewife had to fit into her day - "A woman's work is never done!" would ring very true for a medieval housewife!
It is a fascinating course. Click here to find out more about the course and its 12 units.
