A TELEVISION series focusing on finds from medieval grave excavations was filmed at the University of York.
The six-part series, Medieval Dead, which began on Monday, looks at the preserved remains of the people of medieval period and was filmed on location in the university’s archaeology department at King’s Manor in the city centre.
It follows stories which bring to life details of the lives of individuals of the medieval world – from soldiers who died in great battles to the lowliest of people who endured extraordinary hardship or disease during the course of their everyday lives.
University of York staff who feature on screen include battlefield archaeologist Tim Sutherland and osteoarchaeologist Malin Holst.
Also featured are Yorkshire-based metal detector expert Simon Richardson, who works with the pair. The series was made by independent Sheffield-based production company Dragonshead for UKTV Yesterday.
