Shopping 2! Back for more bargains!

Monday, January 25th, 2021

In this special BONUS episode, the Histories of the Unexpected duo, James and Sam, return to the high street of history and navigate their way around the boutiques and emporia of the historical archives to rampage once again like a bull in a china shop for more frenzied discussion of the expected history of SHOPPING! Which is all about early modern gloves, his and hers consumption, sixteenth-century Italianate gentlemen, and the underbelly of Roman society (via dishonest shop keepers, predatory peddlars, dodgy Roman bars, and the dregs of society). Did we also mention that it’s also all about…. buying and selling early modern gloves? Who knew!
