About the Author
Jacqueline Fearn taught history and wrote for the county magazine 'Bucks Life' before joining Shire Publications as commissioning Editor. Her interest in domestic bygones began when she moved into a thatched seventeenth-century house with a deep ingle fireplace, which she furnished with appropriate equipment and utensils. She has lectured on bygones and appeared on television explaining how some of them were used.

This is a really fascinating book on domestic bygones full of clear black and white photographs. Chapters are devoted to the Hearth, Cooking at the Fire, Preparing Food, Eating and Drinking, Lighting, Washing with lists of further reading and places to visit. Although only small and only 32 pages long it really is a phenomenal little book, explaining the evolution and technology that has shaped the world of domestic tools and items to how we know them today, although many became obscure along the way. The social history of our Domestic Bygones has never been so interesting. I would also recommend that anyone who reads this may also further like to read, The Illustrated History of the Housewife by Una A Robertson
