Hop in the YLT time machine, we are on the move once again, but brace yourself: 1666 awaits.
How do everyday people survive constant war, devastating plague, and raging destruction all within the span of a very short window of time? In this episode, we examine the perseverance of Medieval Londoners, and explore many themes of life in the 17th century that surprisingly overlap with some of the lived experiences of many in contemporary society. We question if these somewhat hidden connections can provide us with education and insight into our current world.
Many 17th century Londoners believed the end times must be near. Join us as we dive into their world and imagine what it must have been like to live in such an incredibly tumultuous and chaotic decade of catastrophic calamities.
