Meet the Ancestors: Living with the Ancestors

on BBC Two England

Archaeologist Julian Richards profiles our ancient forebears using modern forensic techniques.

When Jill and Brian Bushnell wanted to build a garage for their bungalow near Salisbury in Wiltshire, it emerged that their property was built over the site of a graveyard dating from the fifth and sixth centuries. The skeleton of a man was recovered and tests began to find out whether he was a Saxon or a native Briton.
