Alice Roberts’ latest look into Britain’s archaeological discoveries takes her to the west of the country.

Here she follows the investigation into HMS Invincible, the largest maritime investigation since the Mary Rose; encounters a Roman bathhouse in Silchester; learns how German soldiers where key to 18th century security thanks to a buried military camp; and we learn of some tragic stories from a pauper’s graveyard.

Digging for Britain is on BBC Four at 21.00.
