Ham House in Surrey will be hosting a series of guided tours exploring sleeping habits in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Dr Sasha Handley of Northumbria University has been researching historic sleeping patterns. She will talk about how, where and when people used to sleep in houses such as Ham.
The tours will take place on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 August, at 12:15, 14:00 and 15:00. They will be open to all visitors on a first-come-first-served basis. Yawning during the tours will be actively encouraged.
