08/22/2005 Archived Entry: "Lessons for gulchers from the 17th century"

LESSONS FROM 1620. A group of historians and archeologists recreated a Welsh farm of the 1620s. For a year, they wore the clothing, used the tools, lived the life, and ate the foods of their 17th-century ancestors. While they discovered -- no surprise -- that the life was hard and laborious, they also emerged with 10 observations that could be healthy for all of us. Fascinating. Any rural dweller or would-be gulcher should have a good read. But this is food for thought even for a city apartment dweller.

(Thank you to Mystery Woman.)
