Staff Comments:

Ok so it's not Medieval, but it's fantastic. I do wish that someone would do a Medieval one just like this and I would really like these folk to do it. This same group then went on to do life on a 'Victorian' Farm and 'Edwardian Farm' with the same level of accuracy and gusto. Get your mits on this and watch as there are hours of entertainment here and a lot of thought provoking stuff as well! There is also the Building of The Green Valley companion book that looks at how it was done, funded, organised, researched .... and looks at the buildings, animals, plants ..... do yourself a favour and grab a copy of this at the same time.
