Pavel is involved in his everyday routine: washing, cooking, crafting, timing. Of course, without electricity. Many of us have experience of solving problems without microwave, gas, washing machine, central heating and sewers. But almost nobody has faced with all these problems in a complex, affecting all aspects of daily life, especially for such a long time.
Pavel is a modern man, he is used to dynamic way of life. Of course, it was quite difficult for him to get adopted to the lack of electric light, which one can turn on just pressing the button.
At first Pavel scattered a lot of vessels, lost usefeul small items, broke tools. Now he has somewhat accomodated to these severe conditions.
So, what about lighting on the medieval farmstead? The most available, of course, is sunlight. Pavel uses this resourse as much as possible. All work concerning the farm he makes in morning and evening twilight, when he can see something outdoors, and indoors there is still pitch darkness. Pavel makes his minor work usually indoors next of the open door. He stokes his stove at the same time, so he can warm himself during working.
On the second place Pavel uses torches of splinters. The main quality of splinters is their inexhaustibility. The main shortcomings – faint and irregular light, quick burning, fire risk. Splinters are very uncertain.
