Episode Summary

EDIT
South Shields, Tyneside
AIRED:
Tower Blocks and Togas. South Shields is well known for the Roman fort of Arbeia at the end of Hadrian's Wall. A few tombstones and burials have been found here in the past hundred years, but these account for only a small fraction of the legionaries and others who must have been buried on this site. Somewhere there must be a large Roman military cemetery – or cemeteries. Unfortunately, the most likely location for any burial ground is under a large 1960s housing estate. So, for this programme Time Team had to investigate every spare piece of open space; seek out the scraps of undisturbed stratigraphy among developments both Victorian and modern; dig in the gaps between services; take a look under the occasional pavement; and enlist as much local help as possible, young and old, in the hunt for the site. It was three days of head-scratching mayhem before the answer emerged.moreless
