I ran across this series on Youtube and wanted to share it. It's rather interesting to me watching it. The series follows 3 people in each video as they learn ancient crafts and attempt to master them in just a month.  Most of these skills usually take years to master, so it is quite a daunting concept. I think, if anything, the level of success shown by those involved says something about the methods we use to teach.

Anyway, the episodes are as follows:
1 - Green Woodcraft

2 - Thatching

3 - Blacksmithing

4 - Stained Glass

5 - Weaving

6 - Stonemasonry

We watched the stone mason one. It was really good! My four year old really enjoyed it and asked lots of questions. I'm tempted to get him a chizel and mallet and let him whack at some rocks with goggles on.

I LOVED breaking rocks with hammers as a kid. It would have been really cool to be able to try to carve them!
