A new project aims to use incidental references to work activities in court records to provide valuable quantitative and qualitative insights into women's work in rural England between 1500 and 1700. The project will focus on the South West of England, with data drawn from the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Hampshire, and Somerset among others. The project is aimed at solving the problem of unpaid work done by women in rural England in the form of household work.
