Archaeological treasures and the stories they tell
Join TV presenter and archaeologist Mary-Ann Ochota and storyteller Jason Buck on a unique journey through Britain’s history, telling stories inspired by historical artefacts from the Iron Age to World War 2.
Weaving fact, fiction and myth together, Mary-Ann and Jason will reveal the intriguing, exciting and occasionally bizarre stories behind archaeological treasures, both famous and forgotten.
Get ready for an evening of warriors and witches, love and loss, Viking gods, treasures hidden from the Nazis, and a hungry cow.
