The Lost Norman Motte And Bailey Castle Of Alderton | Time Team

History Documentaries

When amateur archaeologist Derek Batten bought a plot of land advertised as a castle and moat, there was little sign of a castle other than a leafy mound surrounded by a ditch. The team uncover the truth about the site’s past and even discover a link to William the Conqueror. The team is joined by castles expert Philip Dixon. Phil Harding gets kitted-out in chainmail as a Saxon footsoldier, facing a mounted Norman warrior on a Spanish stallion.
