Groundbreaking series in which Michael Wood tells the story of one place throughout the whole of English history. The village is Kibworth in Leicestershire in the heart of England - a place that lived through the Black Death, the Civil War and the Industrial Revolution and was even bombed in World War Two.

With the help of the local people and using archaeology, landscape, language and DNA, Michael uncovers the lost history of the first thousand years of the village, featuring a Roman villa, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings and graphic evidence of life on the eve of the Norman Conquest.

I admit I do adore History, and I am a bit parital to dear old Blighty. and this series is very interesting. I just learnt Simon de Montfort was cut up into pieces, inculding his private parts and scattered for his part in a revolt.

Who said England wasn't fun. yay

Up next week on BBC2 at 7pm on BBC2 the Black Death and it effect on England. witch
