We are attending  the British Academy's Summer Showcase where there will be an exhibition on Sleep in Early Modern England

Sleep in Early Modern England is the first in-depth investigation of the history of sleep. It reveals how our ancestors approached bedtime, the fascinating rituals that bookended sleep, and the powerful religious motivations that fuelled the pursuit of a good night's rest. Join Sasha Handley to make your own scent bag, sample some of the smells from a seventeenth century bedchamber and find out how historic sleep patterns may help us to get a more restful night's sleep today.
