About this programme

2/4. Professor Sue Black and her team visit York to investigate two skeletons found in a mass grave uncovered in 2008. The team find a rare genetic peculiarity between the remains, and wonder if they could be brothers, one of which was severely disabled. The trail to discover how the two men ended up in the grave looks at the events surrounding the English Civil War, giving a perspective on disability quite different from modern attitudes.
