Colonial House: For Teachers: ‘Tis a Very Dirty Manner of Life

6/18/2012 By:

In 2004 Public Broadcasting System premiered the series Colonial House about life in Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1628. An interesting interactive on this companion website brings colonial history alive. By reading the diaries of the various colonists presented, students figure out who wrote the mystery diary. A glossary defines the 17th century words that are unfamiliar to today’s students so they can “translate” the diaries into 21st century parlance.
