Shoreline Detectives

The shoreline, seabeds and sandbanks of the British coastline are among the richest historical treasure troves on Earth, home to tens of thousands of unique archaeological sites. In this three-episode series, paleontologist Tori Herridge and archeologist Alex Langlands visit submerged Elizabethan shipwrecks, prehistoric stone forts, Roman villas, medieval villages, 18th-century merchant ships, and drowned forests - wonders that will soon be lost forever because of climate change.
