Chronicle: Archaeology on Television | Excavations and reports from Sutton Hoo to Machu Picchu
For 25 years, the BBC's archaeology series took viewers around the world to explore historical excavations and discover long-gone cultures and civilisations.
With a mix of live broadcasts and filmed documentaries, 'Chronicle' brought some of the greatest archaeologists of the 20th Century into our homes. In this collection, we look back at a selection of programmes from the series.
