Working on Land and Water
Farmers and their families worked throughout the year to grow food and collect fuel.
They had to organise their lives around the changing seasons, ensuring that every task was completed despite the unpredictability of weather and health.
These tasks included managing livestock, cultivating potatoes and cereals, and the cutting and saving of turf. Sea and fresh water fishing were also important.
This exhibition explores these activities and deals with the various trades that supported them.
