Digging for Britain: Pre-history

1 x 55 HD
Broadcaster:  BBC

Dr Alice Roberts follows years of groundbreaking British archaeology, combining on-site visits that capture each discovery as it happens with CGI and lab-based investigations that bring history to life.

 

In this episode, flint tools unearthed by teams in Norfolk push the earliest human occupation back by 200,000 years, to around a million years ago. In Orkney an early farm yields glimpses of our ancestors' earliest religious beliefs and customs. And in Devon, we find one of the oldest known shipwrecks, plus a bronze age burial that holds touching evidence of grief echoing down over 2000 years.
