|The Wedding Present - Scargill Castle
In a first for the show, Tony and the Team are invited to investigate a very unusual wedding present.
When two archaeologists married, groom Niall Hammond gave his bride Caroline a ruin, Scargill Castle in County Durham.
The castle was reputed to have been a medieval stronghold in a violent era of battles between English and Scottish kings.
The Team have just three days to explore the history and layout of the site in order to paint a true picture of what the castle looked like in its prime.
