History comes alive as Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and Tom Pinfold journey back to the beginning of the 16th century to find out what domestic life was like in Tudor times.
Set against a stunning medieval background, the trio take on the role of the lay-folk who did the bulk of the farming and craftwork within monastic lands, from wine-making and cloth production to the development of the waterwheel and sheep breeding.
It is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on a most intriguing period of history, for, if you want to look into the spiritual heart of medieval England, there is no better place than the monastery. And for Ruth, Peter and Tom, they must tackle not just a new era but a whole new way of life.
