Time Team Special: Britain's Drowned World

10:00pm Wednesday, March 2 on M4

Until 8,000 years ago, Britain was just another part of mainland continental Europe. But, in a timely reminder from prehistory, our ancestors were driven off their land after major climate change. Tony Robinson pieces together the story of Britain’s drowned world: the land, far bigger than England is today, lost when the North Sea and the English Channel were formed in a huge, 10,000-year flood.
