Household Goods in Medieval London with Katherine French

Material goods are a rich and fascinating source for finding out more about the ordinary lives of the people of the Middle Ages. This week, Danièle speaks with Katherine French about what Londoners’ homes were like both before and after the Black Death, what they filled them with, and how we know.

Katherine French is the J. Frederick Hoffman Professor of History at the University of Michigan, where she researches about women in the Middle Ages. She is the author of Household Goods and Good Households in Late Medieval London: Consumption and Domesticity After the Plague, published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.
