Description

Prize-winning author Professor Amanda Vickery sets her sights on the golden age of homemaking – the Georgian era.

Through dramatic reconstruction she traces the story of the unique relationship Britons enjoy with their homes, arguing that the Georgians’ preoccupation with décor helped to redefine the part played by men and women in British society. Characters from all walks of life including gentlewomen in their stately mansions and servants with only a locking box to call their own, are bought to life as Amanda reveals the artefacts, letters and diaries of the age where the modern notion of a ‘home’ was born.

Amanda Vickery is Professor of Early Modern History at Queen Mary, University of London. She is the author of ‘Behind Closed Doors: At Home with the Georgians’ (2009) and ‘The Gentleman’s Daughter: Women’s Lives in Georgian England’ (1998). 

"Illuminating …a fascinating three part series…this is real living history" Daily Mail.

"Amanda Vickery is a naughty, clever, humorous eavesdropper on the past. She has the Georgians in her sights like no one since Jane Austen." Daily Telegraph
