This was an excellent tv series where 17thc experts Ruth Goodman and Stuart Peachey recreated 17th century farming techniques in a settlement in South Wales. There's a lot reenactors of all periods could learn from this series and it would be useful for projects like this to start all over the world. With the Jamestown tercentenary coming next year in the US it would be nice if some of the 17thc specialists from this country were to be invited to it...anyway buy the DVD and learn more from the above website.
I cringed a bit when I read my review - in my defence that was written when nobody read my blog and I was being a smart arse. How times change he said sarcastically.
