How To Build A Medieval Castle

Yes, really. This time they’ve really bitten the bullet on historical re-enactment. Ruth, Peter and Tom, previously seen on the Tudor Monastery Farm, have travelled to France to take part in an archaeological project of huge proportions. Using 13th century tools and materials, they learn how a castle was built. As someone who loves Medieval history, this is right up my street. And if their past enthusiasm (pun unintended) is anything to go by, they’ll be doing this with gusto.

The five-part programme, The Secrets of the Castle, starts 18th November at 9PM on BBC2.
