about this item

Modern myths about medieval and early modern hygiene and health continue to dominate our understanding of the pre-modern world. People in the past might have used different approaches to hygiene and pursued well-being perhaps differently than we do today, but they were neither dirty nor sickly. Their societies functioned well because they embraced their own hygiene and had a functioning medical system.
