The probate inventories described in the article (75 documents) list the property of Cracow burghers, mainly councillors, magistrates, merchants and craftsmen. The law required a physical inventory to be taken, therefore objects were described room by room. Probate inventories were usually very detailed; they recorded varied garments, vessels, furniture and household utensils, as well as the contents of a workshop or shop, if the late person was an artisan or a merchant. They specified the value of the registered objects, but also funeral expenses, debts and other liabilities influencing the value of the inheritance.
