Episode 18 " The Lost Souls "
Julian Richards recruits local schoolchildren from the village of Wing in Buckinghamshire to investigate a burial ground found among the foundations of the Victorian village school in Buckinghamshire. From this site, which is next to one of England's oldest churches, archaeologists have uncovered a large number of graves
The project provides a revealing insight into the history of the area and the people who lived there 1,000 years ago - the village's origins are celebrated each year by a Saxon carnival and the church once held sacred relics thought to possess the power to cure.
With the help of pupils from the village school, Julian investigates the age and origins of the ancient burial ground.
The dig soon unearths the remarkably preserved skeleton of a child aged around 12 years-old.
Julian enlists the help of a medical artist to attempt the reconstruction of its face. Carbon-dating and DNA testing conclude that the skeleton is of a young girl who lived and died around the turn of the 1st millennium. Perhaps she was brought here during an illness to attempt a cure.
With Julian back into lecturer mode, the pupils of Wing get to see the reconstructed face of one of their ancestors and Jhe compares the lives of children from the turn of both millennia to illustrate his talk.
As with all the Meet the Ancestors episodes this programme includes Excavation, Post Excavation, synthesis and facial reconstructions.
