Huguenots at Home lets you in to three Huguenot households. Explore how people lived in the seventeenth century. The Spitalfields Riots were caused by disputes between the ordinary weavers and the big manufacturers over the prices paid for silk cloth. The conflict split the Huguenot community down the middle.
