I will be giving two talks at the March 16th, 2019 Boston History Camp ! Below are the titles and descriptions.

Four Yellow Love Drawers: A (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 drawers that were worn on the streets of 17th Century Manhattan. 

Vikings in New York and Delaware

While the raiding of other people comes to an end in the 12th century, Viking culture and material goods continues on in Iceland and the Faroe Islands through to the 14th Century. Icelandic and Faroe Island knitwear, textiles such as wadmal and other goods made from the same technology introduced by the Vikings will be imported to New Sweden and New Netherland through to the middle of the 17th Century.

See You There !
