Hunting King Harold - Portskewett

In the last programme of the series, Tony and the Team investigate Harold's Field near Portskewett in South Wales, where local legends state that King Harold II built a hunting lodge in 1065, a year before he lost the Battle of Hastings.

However, as the archaeologists quickly find while investigating the previously untouched site, the Saxons were not alone in their interest in the location with signs of occupation dating from the late Roman times until well into the Middle Ages.

And all in just three days.....
