From Constantinople to Cornwall - Padstow

This week the Team are investigating a site overlooking a beautiful cove and estuary near Padstow, Cornwall, to investigate why 1,500-year-old pottery and metalwork originating from North Africa and Turkey has been discovered by locals.

Geophysics results suggest that an Iron Age village may have once been here, but the archaeologists think the inlet may have also been a port for Mediterranean traders.

Can the team find the evidence which will support this theory? And can they figure out how this site would have looked in it's heyday? All in just three days.....
