Professor Alice Roberts explores Britain's history through the stories of individual towns and cities, revealing what life was really like at key moments in our turbulent past. Alice's journey takes her to: Roman Chester, Viking York, Norman Winchester, Tudor Norwich, Regency Cheltenham & Victorian Belfast. In Chester, Britain's most Roman city, Alice enjoys a Roman feast, checks out an extraordinary archaeological find deep underground and explores a radical theory on the Romans' plans for the city. In York, Britain's most Viking city, Alice takes part in a Viking battle, meets the metal detectorists behind one of the UK's greatest archaeological finds, and gets her hands on a Viking poo. In Winchester, Britain's most Norman city, Alice storms a castle in chain mail, investigates the origins of modern surgery, and tucks in to an eel pie. Alice learns the harsh reality of religious intolerance, uncovers the origins of Norwich City FC's iconic canary, and experiences humiliating Tudor justice. In Cheltenham, Britain's most Regency town, Alice attends a period society ball, investigates the rigid social hierarchy of the age and explores the Regency fondness for enemas. In Belfast, the UK's most Victorian city, Alice visits the shipyards that built the Titanic, gets locked up in the notorious Crumlin Road gaol and takes a crash course in 19th-century female etiquette.
