Daily and afterlife of children (1500–1900): New perspectives in identifying childhood in the past

Faculty of Humanities

The project regenerates archaeological childhood studies through examining the status of children between 1500 and 1900. These will be approached through application of theories of emotions, performance and identity research.

Research topics:

  1. Finding children's voices in the archaeological materials from burials and settlement contexts,
  2. Studying socialization of children based on historical sources such as probate inventories, mill, and school records,
  3. Analysing the nutrition and health of the past children and discussing breastfeeding patterns.
