    • How did our ancestors dress?
      Fashion plays an important role in modern society. But how did our ancestors dress? The middle class, Working classes, what were the differences? Were clothes bought, or were they made at home? If so who designed the patterns? All interesting to understand the lifestyles of our ancestors.

    • Remedies and Medical treatments
      Today we take for granted many pharmaceutical products which make everyday life more comfortable during periods of illness. But how did our ancestors deal with these same health issues? What natural remedies were there? When was a doctor called, and what treatments would he prescribe? How did conditions of hygiene affect health and or life expectancy? What can we learn from our ancestors knowledge of natural remedies?
