In 18th-century Britain, wealthy aristocrats would pass the time and show off to their friends by surrounding their palatial country estates with contemplative architectural monuments. One such structure was the hermitage…

…complete with an actual hermit living in it.

Narrated by real-life historians Colin Fanning and Gordon Campbell, The Hermit is a comical take on one of the most bizarre practices of bored rich people.
