This Is So Cool!

In case you missed it— 

PBS is recruit­ing now to live at the dawn of mod­ern Amer­i­ca. Have you got what it takes to live in the ear­ly 17th cen­tu­ry for five whole months? COLONIAL HOUSE is look­ing not just for fam­i­lies, but for indi­vid­u­als too. We want a diverse group of peo­ple, but par­tic­i­pants will have to be men­tal­ly and phys­i­cal­ly able to cope with the day-to-day rig­ors of this extra­or­di­nary chal­lenge. Right now, prepa­ra­tions are being made for film­ing in a beau­ti­ful but remote cor­ner on the East­ern Seaboard. There, our vol­un­teers will be ful­ly immersed in ear­ly colo­nial life. Start­ing in late spring, through sum­mer and ear­ly fall of 2003, we’ll see how they fare with plant­i­ng and har­vest­ing corn, catch­ing fish, and liv­ing as a young com­mu­ni­ty. No one will pre­tend it’s going to be easy. Life in the Colonies could cer­tain­ly be harsh. But the tri­umphs and frus­tra­tions of our vol­un­teers will pro­vide a unique account of an icon­ic moment in Amer­i­can history.
