  • Codnor Castle, Derbyshire - Gold In The Moat
    Video: YouTube
    The crumbling ruins of Codnor Castle are a sad remnant of the imposing home of the De Grey family - knights who saw action in almost every important medieval battle including the crusades and Agincourt. Today Codnor Castle lies in ruins and there's almost nothing known of how it looked in its prime. As the remains above ground get an overdue renovation, the Time Team risk the dangers of hidden mine shafts in the Derbyshire coalfields to dig into the heart of a building that once dominated the landscape to trace the castle's history.

    Eighteen months ago, Time Team discovered under this Gloucester field what maybe one of the largest Roman villas yet excavated in Britain. We found whole ranges of rooms including a beautiful bath house arranged around three courtyards spreading all over this plateau. But at the end of the three days, just when we thought we finally understood the villa, geophysics came up with another whole range of buildings running all the way up that hillside. Could this simply mean that the villa was even larger than we’d originally thought, or was there something rather extraordinary happening here 1600 years ago? Time Team just had to come back to Turkdean to find out.

    A Bronze-Age barrow and walkway. Flag Fen, a few miles outside Peterborough, is one of the most important Bronze-Age sites in Europe. Discovered in 1982 by Francis Pryor, who is now director of the Flag Fen Laboratories and Bronze Age Centre, the area is unique in that large quantities of organic material from the period, including wood and leather, have survived, pickled in the waterlogged fenland peat. The centrepiece of this astonishing site is a one-kilometre-long alignment of posts passing across what would have been a stretch of open water during the Bronze Age and linking what was then the mainland with Northey Island. Where the alignment crosses the water, there is also a huge ...more
