In this three-part series, author and historian Amanda Vickery explores the lives of the Georgian people in order to unlock the secrets of their homes. Vickery uses her knowledge of the Georgian era as well as diaries and letters written during that time to better understand the ways people lived and how that translated to the building and decorating of their homes, and vice versa. “At Home With the Georgians” thoroughly examines how the home contributed to the success or failure of a marriage, provided a creative outlet for women and why it was constantly faced with threats such as violence and theft.

Amazon editorial Review:
Prize winning author Professor Amanda Vickery sets her sights on the golden age of homemaking – the 18th Century Georgian era. Through dramatic reconstructions, she traces the story of the unique relationship Britons enjoy with their homes, arguing that the Georgians’ obsession with decor helped to redefine the parts 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 brought to life as Amanda reveals the private diaries, intimate letters and curious artifacts of the age where the modern notion of a ‘home’ was born.
