Excavating and restoring a British naval find; mystery surrounds a forgotten Tudor palace; Shakespeare's first theater.
Roman Britain gives up some of its mysteries as Professor Roberts investigates the remains of 97 babies found near the Thames River, visits a newly discovered town in rural Devon, and examines a cult figure that has been buried for more than one and a half millennia beneath a Roman fort.
Roberts travels back to Britain during the time of the Vikings: to their earliest settlements in the Outer Hebrides, to excavations underway at their capital of York, and to their final stronghold in the remote Orkney Islands. She takes a look at some of the most celebrated finds, including the carved-ivory Lewis Chessmen.
