The Real Vikings: A Time Team Special

8:00pm Monday, October 11 on C4

Tony Robinson, Mick Aston and Phil Harding follow digs around the UK that uncover a vast array of archaeology and provide fascinating insights into our Viking past. The Team report from excavations across the country, from Orkney to the south coast, but it is in Hungate, York that the biggest discoveries are made. This huge dig uncovers the thousand-year-old Viking remains of streets, houses and a trading centre. Using all this research, Tony and the Team paint a new and much more complex picture of these skillful and enterprising people.
