The Victorian farm team tackle their biggest project yet: restoring the village blacksmith's forge. First they must make bricks to restore the chimney - a full five day and night process in which the farmer gets no sleep.
As winter marches on and Christmas nears, they must source a yule log: firewood to burn for the Twelve Days of Christmas. At the cottage, Ruth winter-proofs the house, making a paper blanket and remedies for coughs and colds. It is also a chance to begin preparations for the Christmas banquet in earnest - in particular, a very Victorian invention, Christmas crackers. Ruth enlists the help of Christmas cracker historian Peter Kimpton.

As an archivist / historian, I definitely agree that the clothing you see that’s survived the centuries are the fancy clothes of the rich - because they could afford clothes you wore a few times and could be saved. The clothes of the working people were worn day after day until the wore out. Then any good cloth was salvaged for children’s clothes, while scraps went to make rugs, quilts, and rags to clean with, and even tiny scraps and threads were used as wicks in candles and gas lamps. The great thing was that there was no waste. No clothes being tossed out because it was no longer this years fashion.

see my comments too on the use of flannel and how it shinks big time. you must make 2 sizes larger and then use hot water to wash to get the full heat retaining effect.

Even the smallest scraps were sold to the rag and bone man. The rags were bought by paper makers, who ground the rags even smaller and became pulp for paper. Perhaps you've seen "cotton paper" or paper that says it is "linen rag?" Nothing could be afforded to be wasted.

The joyful, unbridled way in which these three conduct themselves absolutely places them among the top presenters/documentarians of all time...and Ruth, oh, her charisma is spell binding with her delightfully gentle beauty, laughter and depth of character. And Peter, that guy is a team of horses in his own right. Never has a man worked so hard and kept a great spirit about him. Okay all, I’m finished! Thanks Absolute History.

I absolutely love these videos. I wish they had these with Ruth, Alex, and Peter when I was in school. I would have learned history so much better than reading from a book. Watching them makes history so much more real to me. Thanks to Ruth, Alex, and Peter I am learning at the age of 48. Every time I learn something new I have to share it with my boyfriend even tho he gives me a look like I don't care lol.
@3leggedsharkkickssurferinballs 3 yıl önce
Agreed! The difference between a boring subject and an interesting one is the teacher that presents it. The book and TV series "Horrible Histories" also did a fantastic job of bringing history to kids ( and adults, really) in a way that was entertaining AND informative. Had such a thing existed in my youth, I probably would've ended up studying history! Sorry to hear your boyf doesn't share your interest. Hopefully you can find friends who do! It's important to be able to share our interests with others.

During Hurricane Sandy that hit NJ so hard several years ago, we were without power for 2 weeks. Luckily we were living in a log cabin with a fireplace, and we had just stacked a cord of wood 2 days before the hurricane hit. Due to the lack of power, I unpacked my great-grandmother's hurricane lamps from the late 1800s, to use for light. My grandmother always said, the English don't buy antiques. They just never get rid of anything, lol. They were in wooden crates and hadn't been unpacked since WW2, judging by the news they were wrapped in. They worked quite well, and I was thankful, I had saved them. They shed more than enough light to read by. Even though the hurricane was devastating, I have to say that those 2 weeks we lived with no technology, cooked over a fire, boiled water to wash dishes and clothes, and all pitched in to get all the work done by sundown every day; it was one of the happiest and most relaxed I've ever seen my family, and I loved it.( I also found that in a pinch, a wide flat sneaker shoelace makes a good wick if you cut the tips off :)

ur probably right. A family member had a true antebellum home that some movie wanted to use. The trade off was to paint the structure but it was for only the front. Unfortunately, it burned to the ground many years ago because it was way out in the sticks with no real fire department close by. We all cried. The name of the plantation was called Lands End near Stonewall La. After the Battle of Mansfield, the home was used as a field hospital and drapes were torn off the windows for use as bandages.

I adore these wonderful bits of Early 19th century farmland history. Interestingly, we received s a wedding gift, an antique, 1830 Mennonite “Log Cabin” quilt, from the Mennonite couple who were the witnesses at our wedding 47 years ago (in just 5 days). Our quilt needed some restoration several years ago & while re-sewing some of the Log Cabin panels, I discovered they used 📄 Old dingy white paper between the panels. I’m not certain of the writing on it; it long ago faded. I doubt it was Newspaper. Even in the late 20th century, Mennonites in our area at least, did not read the Newspapers & of course TVs were Verboten. Our area’s Mennonite as friendly as they were to us, were quite religious & strict about “outsider” things. Our area of Pennsylvania was virtually all STRICT Mennonite. We were some of the first to sort of invade that farmland community. Sadly, the farmland is all but gone now, replaced by awful, ugly, condo-type development row homes. The stunning farmhouses are gone; they are literally history. Still, it was such an amazing discovery, to find that old white paper between the panels of our Log Cabin quilt. . I imagine, the tricks of staying warm during that period of history, extended to a great many framers & were employed, throughout colonial & post-colonial farming communities. Many Thanks 🙏🏼 to the creators of this series. It’s just so interesting, informative and just brilliantly produced.

My late father used to handpaint his wrapping paper. I always thought it a little odd that the color and design didn't fit with the gifts occasion. But it looked very much like this. Perhaps there was more of a history behind it than I realized.

The brick makers that used clay around potatoes may have also added protein to the meal. Pigeons, gutted could have clay smeared over the feathers and then baked. When cracked and removed the clay comes off with the feathers inbedded, no plucking needed. Hedgehogs were cooked the same way. Tramps and travelers would do all their cooking over open fires this way no pots required.

also, they did not discuss the fact that flannel is a loose woven fabric that tighten up greatly during washing which provides its warmth. but this results in quite a bit of shrinkage. in fact, after washing in hot or boiling water, shrinkage can be up to 20 pct. this would have been an important consideration to women that actually knew how to make clothes when cutting a pattern, it would have been cut very, very generously. but the shrinkage means the fabric will thicken and give extra warmpth. just a note. flannel still shrinks and if you use for patterns it beware of the shrinkage. I like to use my nice soft flannel for quilt backings and pillow cases. I still like long staple cottons for sheets tho. It can pucker your hand made quilts which is generally highly desired as giving them an authentic antique look.

When I did my semester abroad I could understand one thing that access to more income than what you needed separated those that saved things and those that struggled to survived--space. If you had the money you could always get space to store things and those that struggled did what they could to get by. Some that struggled did save some things but not as much as those in higher financial classes of people could do. When you have many people sharing a bed verses an individual having a private bedroom to themselves.

Sewing and chatting is social and television in silence is not, and certainly not constructive, just mere entertainment. But i find your programme constructive, informative, getting me thinking about that society compared to ours. As a builder i especially enjoyed the brick making part, that was candy, but good for me kinda' candy.
