How to be a Victorian
What was it really like to be a Victorian? We know what life was like for Victoria and Albert. But what was it like for a commoner like you or me? How did it feel to cook with coal and sprinkle tea leaves on the carpet? Drink beer for breakfast and clean your teeth with cuttlefish? Dress in whalebone and feed opium to the baby? Drawing on historian Ruth Goodman’s unique first-hand experience, gained from living for a year on a Victorian farm, as well as a life devoted to practical historical study, this book will teach you everything you need to know about nineteenth-century living, from morning to night, kitchen to textile mill. ‘I absolutely love this book. Exuberant, absorbing . . . there’s scarcely a detail of Victorian life Ruth has not tried.’ A. N. Wilson, Mail on Sunday ‘A delightful read. A triumph.’ Judith Flanders, author of The Victorian City ‘Shocking, exciting, wonderful.’ Clive Anderson, BBC Radio 4 ‘Highly readable, often amusing, sometimes shocking. Popular history at its best.’ BBC Who Do You Think You Are? magazine
