If you enjoyed the BBC series Digging for Britain with Dr Alice Roberts you can watch clips from the programmes on YouTube, including some additional footage from the foreshore at Greenwich with Graham Kenlin from MoLA, and Nick Stevens and Steve Brooker from the Thames and Field Metal Detecting Society. A second series of Digging for Britain has been commissioned so watch this space for further updates!

In the series, Johnny Vaughan embarks on an historical adventure, exploring the archaeology of the River Thames, teaming up with Steve Brooker to explore the artefacts on the foreshore and to discover more about how they were made and who used them and where.

Emma Read, Executive Producer, ITN Productions said: “This dirty, hands-on history show will appeal to the adventurer in all of us and deliver a very different look at the past. As he makes a range of discoveries, Londoner Johnny Vaughan will give viewers a fresh perspective on his home city.”
