Summary

The Time Team presenter's journeys along Britain's oldest trackways concludes as he treads the North Downs Way, which was used by pilgrims, traders, hunters and invaders for 5,000 years. Thought to have been a prehistoric highway linking Britain to the continent, the track was used by Celts and Romans alike, and Tony investigates some of the megaliths, burial sites, ley lines and hidden caves that lie alongside the route. Travelling from the cliffs at Folkestone to Down House in the rolling North Downs, Tony visits one of Britain's oldest oak trees, attends the shrine of Thomas Becket, and uncovers a lost Roman battle site.
