Prince Dmitri Nekhlyudov:
This summer, Norwegian archaeologists excavating in Orkney came upon the grave of a Viking Chieftain. Among its miraculously well-preserved contents were a small pile of female bones, the first indisputable evidence ever found for Viking human sacrifice. Chronicle cameras recorded from start to finish the delicate process which threw this dramatic new light on life in the Orkneys a thousand years ago.
THE GHOST SHIP
Thirty years ago archaeologists came upon one of the richest finds ever made in Britain, the Sutton Hoo treasure ship. But the ship itself consisted only of rivets and stains in the sand. Now by a remarkable process technicians from the British Museum have made a ninety-foot-long cast of the vessel, bringing to life again the great Anglo-Saxon warship.
