A Planet X Production for ITV (2005)
[quote]Our exciting 6 part "adventure archaeology" series was presented by charismatic antiquarian Mark Olly who went out and about in search of some of the North West's most intriguing lost treasures, legendary heroes and hidden history.
Intrepid investigator Mark discovered how ordinary people frequently unearth lost treasures right on their own doorstep and demonstrated how anyone could help to solve some of the most puzzling mysteries in history by applying basic detective skills and commonsense.[/quote]
During the six episodes of the first exciting series, the team visited local lost treasures in hidden enclaves across the North West of England.
Episode 3: Daresbury and Halton
Daresbury was the birthplace of Lewis Carroll. But just when you think it is safe to go down the tried and trusted rabbit holes our Alice introduces us to lesser know delights in the Wonderland. We were fashionably late for a very important date, but finally traced the origins of the Cheshire Cat right back to 650 BC and a link with the Phonecians.
It's not easy to imagine old Halton which is now surrounded by industry. But if, like Mark, you look carefully enough you can find little clues to some of the missing Danelaw forts of King Alfred. Through computer generated imagery Mark helps to piece together how important Halton was strategically over the centuries.
Not to be outdone King Arthur enters the fray and we find ourselves on Helsby Hill wondering why Sir Gawain's story found its way to the site of a Roman fort.
