Today's modern conveniences make life easier - but have they caused us to lose vital skills our ancestors took for granted? When was the last time you plucked a chicken for dinner? Dug a well to get fresh water? Defended a castle? The time has come to reacquaint ourselves with the past. Here, in a charmingly nostalgic volume, are 101 fascinating things that we've forgotten how to do, along with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to enlighten us. Some are practical, such as shearing a sheep. Others are fun, like playing hopscotch. And still more reveal how folks used to behave - would you know the rules of etiquette at a medieval banquet? You'll be captivated by the ancient tips, time-tested advice, and bygone suggestions.
