15 March 2016

La Cotte de St Brelade, Jersey features on BBC's Digging for Britain

Collaborative archaeological research on Jersey, involving UCL researchers, featured in the opening episode of the latest series of Digging for Britain.

In Digging for Britain, Professor Alice Roberts and archaeologist (and Institute alumnus) Matt Williams present the year's most outstanding archaeology. The episode broadcast on BBC4 on 10 March featured research undertaken by the Ice Age Island Project on Jersey.

Matt Pope and Ed Blinkhorn (Archaeology South-East) were interviewed about their work to find evidence of a Stone Age hunter-gather campsite, often fighting against the elements to do so, and were able to display engraved pieces of shale, found during their excavations, on television for the first time.
