Anti-Pollution Measures and the Common Good in Medieval Paris

Emily J. Hutchison, Mount Royal University

In this Middle Ages for Educators video interview, Sarah McDougall talks to Professor Hutchison about creating a story map to explore anti-pollution measures in medieval Paris, France. 



This project introduces substantial excerpts from a number of records relating to sanitation issued from the royal government during the reign of Charles VI (r. 1380-1422). All have been translated into modern English. Where possible, the evidence is mapped. The ArcGIS StoryMap can be found online here.
