Tony Robinson and the team embark on a dig in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, a town famous for its ancient Roman fort. Archaeologists have found plenty of evidence to suggest the invaders also built a military cemetery in the area, but its probable location is now the site of a housing estate. Enlisting local aid, the experts begin turning over any open space in the neighbourhood - as well as the odd pavement - in search of evidence.
