4. JUN - 18. JUN, 2017
The Cēsis Castle folk invite you on a journey, centuries into the hygene in the Middle Ages. How people kept themselves clean? How often could one wash without harming his health? How should a decent man smell? How to prevent bad breath? How to keep fleas and lice away? Six thematic Sundays throughout the summer will be filled with hands-on activities, mini-lectures and performances all about the ways people took care of personal hygene 500 years ago. Feel, discover and experience the Middle Ages in a real medieval castle!
04.06. ‘SMELLS OF HISTORY’ or scents and stenches of the Middle Ages
18.06. ‘SCRUB AND RUB’ or the art of keeping clean in the Middle Ages
