This book was an extremely interesting overview of how domestic tools and practices evolved through the ages. I didn't realize how "English" it would be with respect to culture. I realized how acustomed I am to an American perspective on things. Random trivia...I hadn't realized how far behind the fork was in becoming a common (British) eating utensil along with the spoon and knife. Apparently the fork was imported from Italy to England.
