""The queen of living history" (Lucy Worsley) returns with an immersive account of how English women sparked a worldwide revolution-from their own kitchens. No single invention epitomizes the Victorian era more than the black cast-iron range. Aware that the twenty-first-century has reduced it to a quaint relic, Ruth Goodman was determined to prove that the hot coal stove provided so much more than morning tea : it might even have kick-started the Industrial Revolution. Wielding the wit and passion seen in How to Be a Victorian, Goodman traces the tectonic shift from wood to coal in the mid-sixteenth century-from sooty trials and errors during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I to the totally smog-clouded reign of Queen Victoria. A pattern of innovation emerges as the women stoking these fires also stoked new global industries : from better soap to clean smudges to new ingredients for cooking. Laced with uproarious anecdotes of Goodman's own experience managing a coal-fired household, this fascinating book shines a hot light on the power of domestic necessity"--… (mere)

The author has done thorough research and presents a very captivating story about how the change of fuel on a domestic level impacted society on multiple levels. I really enjoyed reading about and getting insights into a wide array of topics linked, sometimes in ways I would never have imagined, to the type of fuel used for heating and cooking at home. ( )

I loved this. Never expected to, but it was very instructive by somebody whos is both a historian and has lots of practical experience.

Absolutely spectacular book that traces the changes in everyday cooking and cleaning in Britain from the middle ages to the Edwardians -- which doesn't sound that interesting, but Goodman is an enthralling storyteller. Not only that, but she has a wonderful way of looking at the small and expanding it out to encompass an entire way of life. Has a lot of fascinating tidbits for the medieval reenactor, and really interesting things to say about alternate methods of cleaning than soap. Relates the astonishing impact on the landscape from the change to coal, and the colonial oppression that coincides with the rise of soap. I don't necessarily believe that every theory in this book is true, but I appreciate a tidy history and a compelling argument, and this book has those in spades.

Also, I totally want to make oatmeal bars on our next medieval camping trip.
