Going Medieval

In this two-hour special Mike Loades goes on an action-packed, fact-rich, hands-on journey into the reality of the medieval world, overturning myths and exploring some of its most surprising and revealing truths.

Mike Loades has spent his life exploring history. He is a historian who believes that when you get your hands on the past you discover what a surprising place it was, a place with familiar challenges but very different solutions.
