Summary

Comedian Rory McGrath and archaeologist Paul Blinkhorn visit Ye Olde Reine Deer Inn in Banbury, Oxfordshire, where Oliver Cromwell was said to have plotted the Civil War Battle of Edgehill and sat in judgement on several Royalist trials. As they excavate the ground surrounding the building, they almost break into a bank vault before firing a 17th-century musket and brewing up some of the town's memorable cock ale. But then they make a discovery that may require the history books to be rewritten.
