The History of Etiquette (in One Take).
Featuring Ptahhotep, Jane Austen and Oscar Wilde, this History Bomb charts the rise of manners to the height of the Victorian era, before the general relaxation of etiquette up to the modern informality (and casual blasphemy!) of the text message.
We must say a very big thank you to the staff at the Geffrye Museum for being so accommodating and patient!
