The Craftsmen of Williamsburg20th February 2021
I discovered recently that the good people of Williamsburg, Virginia, have produced a series of booklets on craftsmen operating there during the 18th Century and have generously made them publicly available on Project Gutenberg.
While this site is about Georgian Britain, the technologies in the Old World and the New would have been much the same so I have used them here.
The booklets vary in level of detail but I have extracted some interesting bits onto individual pages and provided links to the Gutenberg copies. I encourage people to look at those because they contain a lot of additional information.
You can find the pages here or under Resources/People and Business/Crafts in the main menu.
