Wicken, in Northamptonshire, appears to the modern visitor to be a typical English village, complete with church and manor house. But back in the medieval era there were two churches and two manor houses here, making up two separate villages ¿ Wick Hamon and Wick Dive.
The residents of modern-day Wicken were curious to learn why there used to be two villages here, and what happened to the church and other parts of Wick Hamon that have long since disappeared. They also wanted to discover which was the older part of the village and whatever else Time Team could tell them about its past.
As usual, Tony Robinson and the Team had just three days to dig up the answers.
