A seminar presentation on doctoral research, employing probate inventories for the Oxfordshire market town of Thame in the 17th century.

A presentation of doctoral research to the Archaeology and Local History seminar series at Kellogg College in November 2011, outlining theoretical and methodological approaches to the interpretation of probate inventories and other contemporary evidence in order to describe the experience of essentially non-elite daily life in the early modern period, and the changes in domestic culture which indicate wider shifts in modes of consumption and social relationships.
