Our Project Communities

This project investigates consumption and well-being over three centuries (c. 1600 – c. 1900) through a microeconomic analysis of two communities - the small town of Wildberg in the Württemberg Black Forest and the village of Auingen in the Swabian Jura. Since the Middle Ages, both communities have been part of the territory of Württemberg in south-western Germany.
