S16E02 - Scargill Castle, County Durham
First screened: 11 January 2009
The Wedding Present Tony Robinson and the team investigate a very unusual wedding present, Scargill Castle in Durham. When two archaeologists married, groom Neil Hammond gave his bride Caroline a ruined castle as a wedding present. However, the castle was reputed to have been a medieval stronghold in a violent era of battles between English and Scottish kings. The team spend three days exploring the history and layout of the site in order to paint a true picture of what the castle looked like in its prime.
