FREE PREVIEW

Britain’s Ancient Capital Secrets of Orkney digs beneath the surface of Britain’s dazzling and mysterious Orkney islands. Orkney might seem remote today but in the Stone Age these fascinating islands were a technological, cultural and spiritual hub. This revelatory documentary uses CGI technology, satellite imaging, drone photography and a robot submarine to bring ancient history to life. Just why are so many weapons, tools and whale bones buried on site? What does the abundance of ceramics and pottery tell us about Orkney’s cultural heritage? Why was this thriving island ceremoniously buried overnight 4,000 years ago – and might a prehistoric mammoth skull hold the answers?
