Description
At the very center of England lies the village of Kibworth in Leicestershire. It boasts an ancient church, a number of pubs, the Grand Union Canal, a First World War Memorial, and centuries of recorded history. It has experiencd the Roman exodus, influxes of Saxons and Vikings, and the Norman conquest; endured the Black Death, the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution; and given its citizens to the building of Empire and to fight in two world wars. In this fascinating microcosm of England, historian and television documentarian Michael Wood chronicles the 2,000-year story of Kibworth, whose residents helped him dig for Roman pottery, volunteered for DNA testing, and offered up their family archives for Wood's research.
