Skilled craftsmen use original techniques and ancient methods to recreate three items of historical importance, and show the processes involved in making them.
Artisans restore World War II rifle, the M1 Garand. Plus, they create barrels using traditional methods and American sports balls from the 19th century.
Artisans forge the Greek hoplite soldier's breastplate. And, they make a print using early industrial wood engraving and create a beaver fur top hat.
Artisans recreate a Viking shield. Plus, they hand-craft an illuminated manuscript and make delicious traditional cheese.
Craftspeople make the katana, the samurai's weapon of choice. They take a delicate daguerreotype photograph, and hand-make an electric guitar.
