Colonial House

2004 NR

"Colonial House" is PBS's answer to reality television. Over the course of five months, "settlers" are forced to adapt to life as it was in the year 1628, on a desolate stretch of coastal Maine. As the group strains to establish a working colony with only the equipment and knowledge of the time period, viewers get a glimpse at life as the Pilgrims experienced it. It's like a living slice of history!
