the cover of lost country life by dorothy hartley, with an image of sheep
LOST COUNTRY LIFE by Dorothy Hartley: A masterpiece of historical research and delightfully readable to boot, 'Lost Country Life' takes us back to the Middle Ages to show us how medieval country people washed, ate, dressed, cooked, made their clothes, and many other activities. My favorite history book. Crafters, back-to-landers, historic re-enactors, survivalists, and writers of medieval fiction will find much to inspire them here.
