Britain's Ancient Capital: The Secrets of Orkney
Neil Oliver, Chris Packham, Andy Torbet and Dr Shini Somara join hundreds of archaeologists from around the world who have gathered in Orkney to investigate one of Europe's biggest digs.
5000 years ago a civilisation more advanced than the Egyptians dominated Britain's cultural past. Our team of experts and archaeologists attempt to uncover how this came to be and how their influence spread from the tiny islands of Orkney to the British mainland. Using innovative archaeological techniques and using experiments such as sailing a neolithic boat to the North Scottish coast, they arrive at their own conclusions.
