Publisher's Description:

Have you ever wondered what life on a farm was like hundreds of years ago? This beautiful book tells the story of one farm and the people who worked on it from medieval times to the present day. Evocative illustrations by Eric Thomas reflect the rhythm of the seasons and their accompanying tasks, from plowing and sowing to harvesting and haymaking, while flaps lift to reveal changing activities inside the farm buildings. Angela Wilkes's finely crafted text details the changing nature of life on a farm, capturing the atmosphere of days gone by. Follow the history of a farm as it develops from a small piece of land rented from the local lord of the manor in the 9th century, into a large, mechanized farm of the 21st century. A Farm Through Time is not only the story of a farm -- it is a portrait of country people, a changing landscape, and of disappearing crafts. It is a book to treasure and return to time and time again.
