Virtual - Author and Historian Toni Mount Discusses "How to Survive in Medieval England"

Saturday, February 10, 2024

Before the understanding of sterilization techniques, the FDA, even the importance of clean drinking water, millions survived through Medieval England. Some even survived into their 80s and 90s! How did they do it? Join author and historian, Toni Mount, as she discusses how it was done and what we would need to do if time travel ever became a thing and we had an opportunity to travel back. This is going to be a fascinating conversation!

This program is at 10am ET (Boston Time). 

If you live in the US , buy signed (by bookplate) books by Toni from Aesop's Fable. Just note in the comments that you'd like the books signed at checkout! If you live outside of the US, contact Toni directly to purchase signed books.

About How to Survive in Medieval England:

Imagine you were transported back to Medieval England and had to start a new life. How would you survive without your mobile phone, internet and social media? When transport means walking (or, if you’re fortunate, horse-back), how will you know where you are or where to go? Where will you live? What is there to eat? What shall you wear? Who can you go to if you fall ill or are mugged in the street? 

However you can you fit into and thrive in this strange environment full of odd people who seem so different from you. All you need is the information gleaned from this entertaining talk based on my latest book: How to Survive in Medieval England
