Time Team Special: Life On The Edge 1000 Bc

10:00pm Wednesday, February 16 on M4

With the banks of the River Witham, just outside Lincoln, due to be strengthened to provide better flood defences, archaeologists have just six weeks to excavate the area. This remarkable dig provides a unique picture of a corner of Bronze Age Britain, where people learnt to live with the fear of rising water levels and disappearing land. And as the archaeologists begin to piece together the evidence a truly surprising story emerges of the life of this site 3,000 years ago.
