Digging up Britain’s Past is a magazine style archaeology show that explores a fascinating period in British history and is based around an ongoing archaeological dig. The show's dynamic presenting team Helen Skelton and Archaeologist Alex Langlands ask big questions about the featured dig, which are answered over the course of the show, shedding new light on key historical periods that have helped define Britain over the millennia. Although the main dig is in one place, the team goes nationwide to help answer the questions posed. Upbeat, celebratory and inquisitive, Digging Up Britain’s Past brings the past to life and solves the mystery of the nation’s greatest archaeological sites.
