Social history television you might enjoy

If you are looking for some interesting television this weekend, head over to BBC iPlayer where you will find Dr Alixe Bovey going In Search of Medieval Britain using the earliest known map of the country as her guide. The programme is available for another 5 days and provides a fascinating insight into medieval society.

If the middle ages aren’t your thing, try Coal House, a series which takes a group of volunteers and immerses them in the life of 1927 coal miners. This episode is available for another 4 days and offers an interesting way to learn about how your grandparents and great grandparents might have lived.
