Domestic Life in Wales is an essential and fascinating source of information on Welsh customs, traditions and domestic culture.  Based on oral evidence gathered during the twentieth century and on documentary evidence from a variety of sources and periods, it covers topics ranging from traditional foods to the covering of table legs, and from crafts such as stocking-knitting and cheese-making to the effect of the coming of electricity on Welsh home life. The late S. Minwel Tibbott was a pioneer in the field of women's studies in Wales and an acknowledged expert in the study of domestic life and traditional foods.  Domestic Life in Wales brings many of Minwel Tibbott's writings together as a tribute to her contribution to folk life and women's studies. This volume demonstrates the variety and depth of Minwel Tibbott's research, as well as offering a particularly accessible and readable introduction to Welsh domestic history.  It will be essential reading for all those interested in the social and cultural history of Wales, folk life and food history, but is also likely to be of interest to a wider audience including those who can still remember some of the traditional ways described.

About the Author:

The late S. Minwel Tibbott was a pioneer in the field of women’s studies in Wales and an acknowledged expert in the study of domestic life and traditional foods. Until her retirement in 1995, S. Minwel Tibbott was an Assistant Keeper in the Department of Buildings and Domestic Life at the Welsh Folk Museum (now the Museum of Welsh Life) in St Fagan's, Cardiff. She was the author of numerous articles on Welsh domestic life, as well as several books, including Castell yr Iechyd (1969) and Welsh Fare (1976).

Review:

“It will certainly enrich our appreciation of women’s role in society, but it has a wider remit also, for it promotes a fuller understanding of the very fabric of the social, economic and cultural life of Wales through the centuries. . . this is a beautifully crafted and illustrated collection of essays which should appeal to all scholars of modern Welsh history . . .” –Welsh History Review

(Welsh History Review)

“. . . an indispensable source of information on different aspects of domestic life in Wales . . . This anthology ‘demonstrates the variety and depth of Minwel Tibbott’s research as well as offering a particularly accessible and readable introduction to Welsh domestic history.” –Folklore
