Britannia Approaches

The first episode the new series ‘The Great British Story – A People’s History’ begins this Friday evening, 25th May, at 9pm on BBC2, focusing on the demise of the Roman empire in Britain, the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons from the continent and how these national events changed the lives of ordinary people in Britannia. The results of test-pit excavations dug by residents and volunteers in the Suffolk village of Long Melford will be analysed by ACA Director, Dr Carenza Lewis, to see the archaeological impact of these changes alongside the documentary evidence presented by the historian Michael Wood.
