Episode Summary

EDIT
Beadnell, Northumbria
AIRED:

Chapel of secrets.

Tony leads the Team to the village of Beadnell on a beautiful stretch of the Northumbrian coast, to explore an unusual promontory, from which mysterious fragments of human bone have emerged over recent years.

Legend ties the site to local seventh-century Saint Ebbe, and it's widely believed that a 13th-century chapel stood here. But could there also be the remains of an earlier structure on the site, perhaps dating to the time of St Ebbe herself? Or are the earthworks on the promontory an indication of Viking or even Iron Age inhabitants?

The only way to find out is by putting spades into the earth, but, before long, the Team are stumbling onto confusing signs of Second World War defences. And then, shockingly, they find skeletons of babies in the trenches. It's a sobering discovery, and one that raises more questions than it answers.

      • Tony: Welcome to Time Team, and this week we're on a rescue mission because over the past 15 years at least 3 metres of this cliff has been lost, and up there are the remains of what locals think are the ruins of an old chapel, possibly up to 800 years old, but are they right?

        This is the chapel, but that's not all, over here is another unidentified structure, could it be a Viking settlement or an Iron Age hill fort or even a Second World War gun emplacement, no one knows. But what I do know is this being time team we've got just 3 days to find out.

      • Jackie:: I think what you thought was just a skull is actually part of an articulated in situ individual here.

      • Danielle: What I can make out is the words Rex Ang.
        Phil: King of England, by the sound of it, then?
        Danielle: King of England absolutely.
