Episode Guide

  • High Worsall, North Yorkshire
    Medieval Village The Team is in High Worsall, near Middlesbrough. It has long been known that there is a deserted medieval village here but no idea how or why the population apparently disappeared into thin air.
  • Downpatrick, County Down
    Saint Patrick's first church In a sleepy corner of Northern Ireland, surprisingly close to the bustle of Belfast, lies the market town of Downpatrick, an eminently respectable place which could proudly boast that nothing very exciting had happened there for centuries. However before that upon Cathedral Hill St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland built his first settlement, and the team are sent to investigate the site that also boast s Bronze-Age encampments and later Benedictine monasteries.moreless
  • Aston Eyre, Shropshire
    Medieval Manor House At this dig, the Team's efforts are concentrated as much above the ground as beneath. They travel to Aston Eyre, where a farmhouse converted from a medieval gatehouse is just the starting point for three days of hard work. Behind it is the derelict Old Hall that, in the 14th century, was the great hall of the lord of the manor. Over the centuries, the hall has been greatly altered but as the layers are peeled away the deserted manor comes to life. And from the written records of the period, a poignant tale about the fate of the family who lived in the manor house comes to light.moreless
