Saxon Death, Saxon Gold - West Langton

This week Tony and the Team excavate a site in Leicestershire which they believe contains an Anglo-Saxon burial ground.

Though their initial search for a cemetery proves fruitless, more digging leads to the uncovering evidence of several types of funeral, as well as a highly valuable piece of jewellery. Years ago, at Winterbourne Gunner, we buried Tony with his grave goods - this time Raksha gets torched!

All in just three days...
