In the final Time Crashers episode, our time travelers are heading back to the Iron Age. They will have to start a fire, prepare chickens, and construct a wicker man. How will our celebrities handle life in the Iron Age? The run time for this episode is 46:23.
The Time Crashers are shocked to find themselves in the Iron Age. It is AD 43 and Rome has just conquered the southern half of England. They are poised to take over more and more of England. However, they have not reached where the Time Crashers are camped. Kristie immediately says that she does not know about the time. She is ready to try it.
They gather at the fire pit and look at the Time Crashers’ guide. They will eat, cook, and sleep in the roundhouses. They learn that they are members of a Celtic tribe. The first job for the Time Crashers is the election of the tribe leaders. They will pick one man and one woman to lead the tribe. Meg and Greg are elected as tribe leaders based on their efforts in previous time crashes. The Time Crashers are going to put on the feast later. Everyone looks forward to putting their new skills to work.
Germaine and Louise are in charge of lighting the fire, which will prove to be a challenge for the pair. Once the fire is lit they will need something to cook. Kristie and Keith look at the food stores to see what they have. Fern and Charlie are tasked to prepare the meat. Fern is confident to pluck it but not to gut it. They look at the deer that is provided, which will prove to be a bigger challenge for the pair. They look for a knife to start skinning the deer. What will they have to use to gut the deer?
Chris explores the outskirts of the camp and discovers a person working with iron and they go to him to resolve their skinning a deer problem. Back at the fire making, Germaine is still struggling with trying to make the fire. However, they do not know what they need to do when there is smoke. However, Greg solves the problem by getting embers from the blacksmith. The fire is started and now the Time Crashers have heat. He felt like a failure for not getting the fire going.
There is fire but no food, and Fern works to pluck a chicken. However, the problem is gutting the chicken. Chris and Charlie work on the knife with a bone handle at the Forge. They will have to skin the deer and give the pelt to the blacksmith for payment. Keeping your word was important In the Iron Age. If a person did not keep their word, then there could be conflict.
The people are getting restless. The food is not ready. Keith jokes that he may ask for reelection if things go up. It will be a tough day for the Time Crashers. They will have to come together to put together the feast. Fern has disappeared from the fire. Meg goes out to track her down. However, living in the Iron Age has proven too much for Fern’s pluck and tenacity. She has learned a lot about herself by living over Time Periods. I am sorely disappointed in Fern for leaving the show early. The Time Crashers come together to talk about Fern’s departure.
After dinner, the Time Crashers go to sleep in the round houses. The women take charge of the fire and take turns throughout the night. The next morning is wet and raining. It may be a challenge to keep morale up during these conditions. They wake up and work on the morning tasks in order to prepare for the feast. Will they be able to complete their tasks in time for the feast? Will any of the other Time Crashers drop out? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out more.
What was the purpose of the social historian again? With all his experience, Tony could have handled this episode on his own. It was an interesting episode to see how the celebrities handled the Iron Age. This would be an interesting episode to show to a history class.
