The Tudor Farming Interpretation Group (TFIG)
In 2009, a group of like-minded people became inspired by the history of Under Whitle farm and a series of Tudor documents relating the area. With a wide background in education we began to develop an exciting interactive learning opportunity for local primary schools. Children came to Under Whitle to experience life as a tudor farmer, cooking pottage over an open fire, ploughing as an oxen team, weaving and spinning and learning how to write a will with a quill.
In 2013, we won the National FACE /Bayer award (click to find out more about this award) for innovative learning and opened the Tudor Farming Days to the general public in an Open Event.
Now we’ve gained funding from a range of grant bodies to extend the opportunities for research and discovery in this community archaeology project ‘Peeling Back the Layers.’
