Today’s INSIGHT: Did You Know That ‘Stew’ Was The Name For A Brothel (A Whorehouse)?

by Anura Guruge


I had no idea. I was confused the first time I heard it used in that context. Appears that in 12th Century England it WAS the word for a whorehouse. Routinely used.

I learnt this via the latest Amazon Audible book I am listening, viz. “A Mortal Bane”. See below. Kind of neat. I can see how this word could evolve over time.
