Tudor Monastery Farm

Historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Peter Ginn and Tom Pinfold find out what it was like to be monastic tenant farmers during the reign of the first Tudor King, Henry VII.

The team turn the clock back over 500 years to run a farm at the Weald & Downland Open Air Museum in West Sussex exactly as it would have been in 1500 when the Christian faith was at the heart of everything.
