    I don’t know how far this essay goes on the ‘useful’ axis (though the origins of the phrase ‘cuckold’ makes an appearance), rather this essay gives a brief flavor into the bizarre practical life of 17th century England. This is a time period we generally have understanding of in the popular culture through stereotypes and distortions, whereas this story is the truth as we know it from medieval court records. Fascinating.
