In this beautifully crafted documentary with exclusive access to archaeology finds of international significance, we tell the history of the Celtic peoples on the cusp of a changing world, as they take their last stand against the Roman war machine.
Mysterious ancient objects are uncovered on a Welsh sheep farm triggering a major archaeological investigation. When the team start to dig, they reveal the grave of a Celtic warrior buried in a richly decorated chariot – it’s dated to one of the bloodiest periods of history, the Roman invasion of Britain and Queen Boudica’s revolt. At the foot of the burial site, they stumble upon a long forgotten hill-fort.
Follow the forensic excavation of this 2000-yearold site, see the iron age artefacts brought back to life, and discover the remarkable and violent story of the war of resistance in the Roman Empire’s Wild West.
