Digging for Britain

Professor Alice Roberts presents the very best in British archaeology straight from the trenches, so you witness each exciting discovery as it happens. The teams then bring their best finds-from skeletons to treasure-back to the Digging for Britain lab, to examine them with Alice and reveal how they are changing the story of Britain.
