The Skeletons of Windy Pits

History Cold Case, Series 2 Episode 1 of 4

Professor Sue Black and her team use forensic science to shed light on the past.

For decades experts have remained baffled by a jumble of human bones discovered in a unique series of caves on the North York Moors, known as the Windypits. One discovery in particular stands out - a tangle of bones that might belong to a family from two thousand years ago.

The trail to uncover answers about what happened to these people leads to a dark world of ritual sacrifice and right back to the limits of British recorded history.
