At the start of the Second World War, Britain produced 14% of its own food but by 1945 that figure was 91% as a every effort was made to ensure food security for the nation. In this discussion, focusing especially on farming in Wiltshire, James Holland and archaeologist and historian Alex Langlands discuss this dramatic change, how farming became the fourth arm, and how both farming and rural communities were turned on their heads by the social upheaval of the war.
