As co-presenter on The Great British Dig, Dr Chloë Duckworth is familiar with bringing history and archaeology closer to home than ever before, descending on streets and gardens the length and breadth of the country to discover the treasures we have been living right on top of without realising.

As well as revealing the actual frontier of the Roman Empire in Britain, the Tudor palace of an Elizabethan spymaster, a revolutionary Victorian prison, a Second World War military base, and a prehistoric village under a school playing field, Chloë gives practical advice for anyone wanting to have a go at digging in their own back gardens.
