Coffers, Clysters, Comfrey and Coifs:
the lives of our seventeenth century ancestors.
A talk by Janet Few
Why do you need a bum roll? What colour were carrots in the C17th? What did the Cavaliers use for deodorant? Can you think of 47 uses for urine? Supplying the answers to the above (well, maybe not all 47 uses), this presentation is a light-hearted but informative insight into the domestic life of our C17th ancestors.
