May

Tales from the Green Valley Episode 9 of 12

Series in which five experts, archaeologists and historians, take on the challenge of running a farm for a year as it would have been in the reign of King James I.

May is their ninth month and the team is behind with the spring sowing, so they get busy trying to cut straight furrows with a breastplough, before harrowing their peas. They try their hand at charcoal burning the old-fashioned way, at making straw rope with a wimble and at cooking up old-style bacon and eggs and a cheesecake.
