Contrary to popular views that medieval cities were pinnacles of disease and dirt, local urban dwellers and authorities in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries did strive to eradicate health threats and to keep nuisances at bay, as their modern counterparts do. Janna Coomans investigates late medieval practices of preventative health policies and urban sanitation in the low countries.
