A tanner in the Middle Ages did the same as a tanner does now, which is to make leather, although the process is far less unpleasant nowadays.

After an animal such as cattle, sheep or pig, has been killed for its meat, the skin is removed by the butcher and passed onto the tanner who will treat it to make it into leather for us to use.

In medieval times, ancient times, and even today a tanner is a person who makes leather.

Leather was vital before the modern era and tanners were highly skilled workers. But they were forced to live on the fringes of society because of the terrible stink that went with the job.

Raw hides were dipped in a sickly-sweet smelling lime solution for a week before the tanner scraped off the rotting flesh and hair. They were then soaked in a bating solution - a warm, steaming gravy made from water and dog faeces, which removed the lime, softened the hides and smelled horrid.

This is a person who tanned leather. It was a very hard process and took several months to properly prepare leather to be used. It was also stinky since urine was used in the process so these people lived outside of a town.
