Tales from the Green Valley: DVD

There is no electricity, refrigeration, mains water, tractors or chemical pesticides. They have to literally live off the land by growing their own food and making their own clothes, with only four hundred-year-old manuals for point of reference.

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.
