The Public Broadcasting System (PBS) is looking for volunteers to live in an authentic 1630s colonial house for up to five months,
for creation of a documentary. You can apply online, but the deadline is February 21!
This network has already done documentaries of this type for a Victorian-era house and for a house in the American western frontier
in the 1800s. The upcoming project, the earliest to date, attempts to study life in the 1630s in colonial North America by asking a
number of families, couples, and singles to live for up to five months in an accurately-reproduced colonial village.
Participants receive a small stipend for participating, but there is no "prize" as this is not a game show. Past experience with
these documentaries has shown that the living conditions are more arduous than some volunteers expect. Still, if you're interested
in life in a pre-industrial setting, this may be your best chance ever.
