A Fortnight in 1916

From July 4th to July 18th 2016 I spent a fortnight attempting to dress, eat, and live as much like a middle class Wellington housewife would have in the winter of 1916 as it was possible for me to do.

While my experiment wasn’t a perfect recreation of life in 1916, the project still provided a significant base for understanding everyday life in the period, and will hopefully be a jumping-off point for pursuing further living history research.
