Summary

Tony Robinson and the archaeologists excavate a site in Leicestershire, which they believe contains an Anglo-Saxon burial ground. Though their initial search for a cemetery proves fruitless, more digging leads to the experts uncovering evidence of several types of funeral, as well as a highly valuable piece of jewellery - and one member of the team volunteers to take part in a re-creation of a cremation ceremony from the period.
