Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn, and Tom Pinford are at it again! This time helping build an 13th Century French Castle.
Each episode tackles an aspect of castle building: from setting up a temporary home for the castle workers, to blacksmithing, to stonework, millwork and creating a castle home. This not only is a fantastic series for a world history classroom but a math class and STEAM class. It makes one appreciate the skill in castle building and anyone should find something to learn from this series.
When I subbed in a middle school history class, the students were working on a project involving the Medieval period, so I showed them the first episode of the this series to help give them ideas for their class projects! The class responded well to the video and I ended up showing the second episode in a study hall class.
This castle is part of the world's longest archaeological experiment. You can learn more about it here: www.guedelon.fr/en/
