New Hidden Killers: The Edwardian Home
The Hidden Killers…series returns with Dr Suzannah Lipscomb this time investigating the death trap items that lurked in the homes of Edwardian Britain.
A new century and a new King – and the British Empire was at its peak. With great success came great innovation and the Edwardian Home was filled with new inventions and must-have items – like asbestos socks, electric table cloths and radioactive clocks…
Dr Suzannah Lipscomb explores how these things – now known to us as some of the most deadly items in existence – were adored by the Edwardians, and brings them to life with science and the expert guidance of historians. Why did they embrace them so readily? And what were the deadly consequences?
