The Worst Jobs in History: Dark Ages

Forget about the Roman Emperors and all the Kings and Queens, this series is all about the people who literally made our history. The Medieval wool industry would have been nothing without fullers spending hours trodding on cloth soaked in buckets of stale urine and without the Victorian navvy’s to build the tracks, trains would never have gone anywhere. Henry VIII’s court would have come to a messy halt without gong scourers keeping the sewers flowing.

So as you can probably tell from the title and the brief summary thus far, we are focusing on the worst jobs in history and in this episode presenter Tony Robinson sets his sights on the Dark Ages.
