In 2001, divers discovered one of the most exciting naval artefacts ever found in British waters, part of the wreck of the 18th century warship The Colossus. This Time Team special follows Tony and the Team as they join divers fighting to recover the ship's treasure and piece together the history of this old warship.
The Colossus has many stories to tell: it was a state-of-the-art vessel that joined Nelson's fleet during the Battle of the Nile. But it was wrecked off the Scillies in 1798 and lay untouched for almost 200 years.
In the 1970s part of the wreck was discovered, but it is only now that the ship's great-carved stern has begun to be revealed by the shifting sands.Watch now on 4oD
