Time Team Digs
1 Series, 8 Episodes
Bamburgh is merely one part of a vast early medieval landscape in northern Northumberland which includes Holy Island or Lindisfarne, the Farne Islands and such inland sites as Yeavering, where a great Northumbrian palace was also excavated by Hope-Taylor.
Time Team's visit to Bamburgh was a little different to the normal filming experience, as the team were visiting an ongoing long-term research project, rather than leading their own excavation.
Hampton Court is the most impressive Tudor palace left to us, a triumph of architectural design and a lasting symbol of Henry VIII's legacy.
Just off the A12 outside Chelmsford in Essex is New Hall. Today it is a bustling private Catholic school, but this imposing building with its impressive Elizabethan facade hides quite a secret: it was here that Henry VIII built his first palace, Beaulieu.
The year 1509 saw the accession to the throne of Henry VIII, a man who would change the face of Britain and the religious and political map of Europe forever.
