Tales from the Green Valley Episode 12 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.

August marks the team's final month and the biggest task is the wheat harvest. Everyone joins in, cutting it down with replicas of period sickles. It's then bundled and dried before they can bring it in by horse.

It's also the season to make rush lights using sheep fat, and they've got to try their hand at geese wrangling.
