Summary
The Old English word "craeft" signified knowledge, skill, wisdom, and resourcefulness.

Archaeologist and medieval historian Alexander Landlands travels from his home in Wales along the Atlantic seaboard of Europe learning a wide range of traditional manual skills, and searching for the lost meaning of craeft
