Tony Robinson and his team of experts come to Yesterday for the very first time, with their journey around the country, archaeological digs and subsequent finds providing living, breathing links to the nation's long and varied ancient history.
The first episode sees the team visit Beacon Of The Fens. Set in the flat, windswept expanse of the Fens, this little mound of earth known as Chapel Hill has intrigued archaeologists for years. The landowners have found ornately carved stone blocks around the hill, suggesting a religious building may once have stood on it - but they've also found beautiful flint axes that are at least 4,000 years old.
Just one of many amazing, fascinating and surprising stories and treasures the team finds throughout the series.

I also caught this programme, truly fascinating.
I was interested in James Lind and the changes he made.The honeycomb texture of the bone signifying disease etc.
Such cruel times in our past.
A nice tribute too, these seamen were buried with full military honours after the archeological dig.
