In this week's show, Tony and the Team are at Groby Old Hall in Leicestershire - formerly the home of Elizabeth Woodville, wife of Edward IV.
Here they discover a surprising array of archaeology beneath its gardens, including a medieval wall and possible evidence of a Norman castle.
They are joined by author Philippa Gregory, who delves into the complex history of the Greys, the house's former owners and one of the most powerful dynasties in medieval Britain.
