Summary

Tony Robinson and the team head to Padstow, Cornwall, to investigate why 1,500-year-old pottery and metalwork originating in North Africa and Turkey have been discovered by locals. The geophysics results suggest the field in which they were found may have contained an Iron Age village, while the archaeologists suspect the nearby sandy cove may have been a port dealing with traders from throughout the Mediterranean.
