Digging for Britain 9 February 2022: Wednesday on BBC Four 21

East – Series 7 Episode 3 of 4 – Professor Alice Roberts explores this year’s most exciting archaeological finds from the east of Britain. Every new discovery was filmed by the archaeologists themselves, giving us an unprecedented view of each excavation as it happens.

In this episode, we join a team in Suffolk as they uncover an ancient lost monument as old as Stonehenge. We travel a little further east than usual to a WWI battlefield in France to explore one of Britain’s earliest and most disastrous tank battles, and then return to Suffolk as archaeologists try to make sense of some disturbing Roman burial practices. Also, one lucky metal detectorist chances upon a coin hoard that gives us insight into the effect the English civil war had on the lives of ordinary people.

Our roving archaeologist Raksha Dave goes behind the scenes at an archaeological lab in Brighton and follows an investigation into a lost medieval village.
