English Heritage Offer a History of Disability

By December 14, 2012

Follow me on:

English Heritage is offering a set of connected articles on their website charting "A History of Disability: From 1050 to the Present Day." As they explain in their intro text "Disability in Time and Place reveals how disabled peoples' lives are integral to the heritage all around us.  From leper chapels built in the 1100s to protests about accessibility in the 1980s, the built environment is inextricably linked to the stories of disabled people, hidden and well-known.  This section serves as an invitation to those interested in disability or social history to explore what the historic environment has to offer." I'm not going to pretend that this isn't, at times, both difficult and anger inducing reading, but it is a rewarding project.
