Digging for Britain: Anglo Saxons

1 x 50 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.

 

The Anglo-Saxons – they divided our land and heralded the arrival of the Dark Ages. But were they really just barbarians? We visit the royal seat of power at Bamburgh, Northumbria and to find out, and discover that Dark Age skeletons tell tales of violent death, but also of tenderness.

 

From the series Digging for Britain.
