Medieval Bathhouse Project
and page under construction
Welcome to my
newest display... a medieval bath. My fondest hope with this display
is that members of the public will come to learn that medieval
people did, in fact, bath. Soaps were known. Food and drink might
be taken in the tub while a musician provided entertainment.
have the Hollywood ideal that people in the middle ages were dirty,
smelly and had poor hygiene. It just isn't true. My aim here is
to provide the trappings of a bath house. Herbs for bathing, soaps,
a tub and board with food and drinks, a striped linen towel.
