tudor monastery farm e4.

The team are working under the eye of a monastic landlord, learning to master the landscape away from the farm in order to supplement their income. The monasteries' lands covered a variety of terrain, which would need to be exploited by the tenant farmer to raise income for themselves and the monastery. Lead was an important building material and Tom and Peter mine their own using Tudor techniques, while Ruth makes a stained glass window. Later Ruth makes baskets to catch eels in and sets about trying to find some. Back on the farm, the team learn how aspirational tenant farmers would have decorated and embellished their farmhouses, and Ruth produces a wall hanging. Meanwhile, Tom experiments with a camera obscura so his portrait can be produced in the Renaissance style that was becoming all the rage in Tudor England.
