The Great British Dig brings history and archaeology closer to home than ever before, 

Uncovering a lost world of human stories just a few shovelfuls beneath our feet, Chloë explores the team's techniques in fascinating detail, offering new insights and explanations about the discoveries made. 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, 

Chloe is interviewed by Alison Freeman, BBC .
