A developer's hopes of turning a small farm in the Somerset village of Bleadon into a housing scheme burst when an archaeological survey reveals the crouched remains of a prehistoric man and woman. Bone specialist Dr. Simon Mays declares that the man was arthritic and in his 50s.
Meanwhile, to the horror of host/archaeologist Julian Richards, the skull shatters as it's coaxed from the grave—but medical artist Richard Neave reconstructs it.
Seed expert Vanessa Straker examines the grain, oats, and chaff found at the site, and a study of horse skulls and fetal lamb bones lends weight to the theory that this is a 3,000-year-old Iron Age farmstead.
Carbon-dating of human bone provides confirmation that the couple was from the Iron Age.
Village members, many of whom have lived in Bleadon for generations, were invited to provide blood samples so that DNA expert Erika Hegelberg can see if the Iron Age farmers have living relatives in the area.
As with all the Meet the Ancestors episodes this programme includes Excavation, Post Excavation, synthesis and facial reconstructions.
