Ep. 3 - Anglo-Saxons

Digging for Britain

The Anglo-Saxons' invasion of Britain heralded the arrival of the Dark Ages. But were they really just barbarians? Alice Roberts visits the royal seat of power at Bamburgh, in Northumbria, and sees how the skeletons tell tales of violent death, but also of tenderness. There's a remarkable community project in a shopping centre in Sittingbourne, where people are curating the grave goods of their own ancestors. And she sees treasures that make her wonder just how dark the Dark Ages really were.
