Like an archaeological dig, Clothes & Crafts in History offers readers an opportunity to uncover exciting details of past lives in ancient cities and times. From descriptions and physical evidence left behind, readers learn about the variety of materials and skills that craft workers used to produce kitchen utensils, clothes, jewelry, and other items. Each book in the series also includes information on festivals of the time and exciting project ideas that will help young readers identify with peoples and cultures of the past.The nineteenth century is sometimes called the Victorian Age, named after Queen Victoria. During this time, industry began to change from traditional handcrafted goods to machine-produced goods -- threatening to replace the human hand in crafts. People, however, realized that mass production lacked the quality of handcrafted goods and the demand for handmade woolens, delicate lace and embroidery, wood carvings, and pottery kept local artisans busy.
