Summary

Tony Robinson and the team brave freezing weather to explore Chapel Hill on the windswept expanse of the East Anglian Fens. Flint axes and ornately carved stone blocks discovered by the landowners suggest a religious building or prehistoric monument once stood on the small Cambridgeshire outcrop, while other theories about the location's history include a Bronze Age burial ground and a lighthouse. However, the first day of the dig produces evidence the site is even older than the archaeologists expected.
