Roman Britain from the Air

About the Show

Christine Bleakley and Dr Michael Scott take to the skies to see what life was like for Romans and Britons 2,000 years ago. London was created by the Romans and that can be seen more clearly from the air than on the ground, giving this film a very unique take on British history. In a novel journey across the UK, from London to Wales and then heading up north to the spectacular Hadrian’s Wall, some of the secrets of everyday life in Roman Britain are uncovered; they come across 1,800 year old hand cream, find a massive chunk of Roman Britain in an underground car park and visit a Roman toilet on the very edge of the Roman Empire.
