The Green Ages

by Annette Kehnel | 08 August 2024
Hardback
WINNER OF THE 2021 NDR BOOK PRIZE IN GERMANY 'A must-read' Lyndal Roper, Regius Professor of History at Oriel College, Oxford Fishing quotas on Lake Constance. Common lands in the UK. The medieval answer to Depop in the middle of Frankfurt. These are all just some of the sustainability initiatives from the Middle Ages that Annette Kehnel illuminates in her astounding new book, The Green Ages. From the mythical-sounding City of Ladies and their garden economy to early microcredit banks and rent-a-cow schemes, Kehnel uncovers a world at odds with what we might think of as the typical medieval existence. Pre-modern history is full of inspiring examples and concepts that open up new horizons. And we urgently need them as today's challenges - finite resources, the twilight of consumerism, growing inequality - threaten what we have come to think of as a modern way of living sustainably. This is a revelatory look at the past that has the power to change our future.
