Episode 11 – First Impressions

Prior to the Dutch arrival, the Taiwan indigenous peoples had no written language. For this reason, we have little in the way of records of these people before the 1600s. In order to understand the impression they would have of the newly arrived Dutch, we take a look at how European hygiene habits changed from the Dark Ages to the Enlightenment era.
We also take a brief look into cultural diets.
