Digging for Britain: Prehistory
Prehistory
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  SBS  |  September 28, 2018

In Norfolk, newly unearthed flint tools push the earliest human occupation back by 200,000 years, to around 1 million years ago. In Orkney, an early farm yields glimpses of our ancestors' earliest religious beliefs and customs - cattle skulls buried within building walls, and tiny household goddesses. In Devon, we find one of the oldest known shipwrecks. And a bronze age burial holds a mystery, and touching evidence of grief echoing down over 2000 years. Alternative title: Digging for Britain's Secrets.
