Hi All !

I will be giving two talks at the 2018 Boston History Camp. Below are the titles and descriptions.

Vikings in New York and Delaware

While the raiding of other peoples comes to an end in the 12th century, the Viking culture and material goods continues with their wadmal, knitwear and their decedents arriving in Manhattan during the 17th Century. 

Four Yellow Love Drawers: An (Early) Modern Married Couple's Wardrobe

Why would a good man need bright red drawers? Why are hers yellow? And what were love drawers? We'll dive into the personal wardrobes and hampers of New Yorkers and explore the various types, colors and styles of underwear that were worn on the streets of 17th Century Manhattan. 

See You There !
