This is the first episode. In this episode the trio of Ruth, Peter and Tom get right down to business learning what it took to run a successful tenant farm on monastery land.
Building a pig house, plowing with oxen, making tallow lights, using a tread wheel, and traditions of the Christian calendar which filled daily life with rituals are just the beginning of what they will learn and experience over the next 6 episodes. Enjoy!
