Series 20 - Episode 7 Horseshoe Hall

Summary

The team heads to the small county of Rutland to visit Oakham Castle, the most well-preserved 12th-century building in Britain. It was once home to the Norman knight Walkelin de Ferrers, who fought alongside Richard the Lionheart in the Crusades, and before that the residence of several Saxon kings and queens. Tony and the crew investigate de Ferrers' long-lost private quarters, but it takes three days of twists and turns to determine what the site looked like 900 years ago. To mark the visit, they also cast a giant Time Team horseshoe to add to the collection that has decorated the castle hall for half a millennium.
