Activities in the Home

Almost all daily activities were centred around the hearth. The hearth had to be kept in good working order to cook food, clean and dry clothes, and do handwork by firelight. This exhibition deals with building, maintaining and furnishing a house. It also explores feeding and clothing the family and the various activities associated with these processes including trades, craftsmen and craftswomen.
