The Flying Archaeologist: The Norfolk Broads (S1EP2 BBC Four Tues 24 May 2022)



The Norfolk Broads: Archaeologist Ben Robinson flies over the Norfolk Broads where aerial photographs have discovered 945 previously unknown ancient sites, many of which are making historians rethink the area. The fate of the Roman town of Caistor St Edmund has puzzled archaeologists for decades.

It has long been a mystery why the centre never became a modern town. Now archaeologists have discovered a key piece of evidence. And near Ormesby the first proof of Bronze Age settlement in the East of England has been revealed.

Airdate: Tuesday 24 May 2022 at 7.30pm on BBC Four.
