Emily Tuttle specializes in the material culture of domestic spaces in the Middle Ages. She is working to discern differences in living situations between the social classes in Yorkshire, England by referencing notary documentation, surviving artifacts, and visual representations of the home. Her dissertation reveals the connectivity between people of varying classes and locations through their collecting, displaying, and bequeathing practices.
