People's corporality and immersion in the material environment they live in makes people inherently spatial beings. Similarly, sharing everyday life in a material environment makes a community a spatial thing. This book explores the townspeople of Turku, the second most important town in the seventeenth-century kingdom of Sweden, and their relationship to urban space. It gives a new kind of an account of civil and social order in an early modern town. The book is divided into two sections: the town and the dwelling, two central anchors of urban belonging and identity. Viewing the town and the dwelling as spatial entities makes it possible to examine the town and its community in a way that encompasses all of the town's people. This is important as everyone in the urban space played their part in the creation of civil and social order.
