My PhD research ‘Vanished Comforts: Setting the Context for Furniture and Furnishings in Scotland, 1500-1650’, was an AHRC-funded CDP project with the National Museums of Scotland and the University of Dundee, running from 2012 to 2016.
The purpose of the research is to imagine and understand the use and purpose of rooms and planning in Scottish homes and castles in this period, and so the lives of those who used these buildings, from the evidence of surviving objects and buildings, archival records, and narratives with a spatial component.
These posts reflect continuing research in early modern material culture attempting to understand activities in early modern homes, furnishings, costume and jewelry, the roles of servants, and networks of patrons and makers.Follow @restalrig
