Trade follows the flag and empire builders brought luxuries home to decorate castles and cottages. This course looks at pigments, textiles and spices from Central Asia, India, China and South America and how they affected us in Europe. Fashions, home decorative fabrics and exotic items were collected from all over the world, influencing ways of living in Britain, Spain and Portugal, and the Netherlands.
