This series on Yesterday (so you can’t watch it if you subscribe to Virgin, sorry) covers archaeological digs concerning the Vikings.

In this opening edition we follow a dig in Lindisfarne, which was raided by the Vikings in 793 AD. The archaeologists are attempting to find evidence that will back up what was written in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, which was penned a century later, but they soon find bodies.

The Viking Dead is on Yesterday at 20.00.
