Series 1 - 4. The Secrets of Westminster Abbey: A Time Team Special

About this programme

4/4. Tony Robinson and the team are given access to Westminster Abbey as the Cosmati pavement is revealed for the first time in 100 years. The huge mosaic floor in front of the altar, at the centre of which the Coronation Chair is placed, is usually covered by a carpet. The programme also follows a night-time search under the floors for lost tombs and graves, as well as the 1,000-year-old faked documents that gave the Abbey the right to host the Coronation.
