Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 22, 2013 8:00 PM

As stated by the Church of Geography: "In Europe during the Middle Ages, cities were often segregated (in part) by occupation. So if you needed baked goods, you'd go to the section of the city in which all the bakers lived. Shoes? Go to the neighborhood where the cobblers lived.

And the street names reflected these occupations: Bakers Lane, Cobbler Lane, and so on. Many of these names continue to exist, reflecting those cities' Medieval pasts.  Prostitution also tended to be found in particular districts and on particular streets. Sure, Bordhawe Lane still exists in some places (Bordhawe apparently means "brothel"). Yet for some reason, the more imaginitive street names have all been replaced. "

The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.
