After a sell-out run in Autumn ’21, ‘Ancestors’ is returning in Spring ’22. What can a grave tell us about a person? Did the Neanderthals bury their dead? Why was a man from the Alps buried in Wiltshire, four thousand years ago? How is genetics revolutionising what we know about the deep past? And what does all this mean for us, today?

These are just some of the questions Alice will be exploring as she takes us on a tour of her pick of the most fascinating burials in Britain, with behind-the-scenes insights from digs and filming - and a chance to buy a signed copy of her new book, Ancestors.


‘This is a terrific, timely and transporting book - taking us heart, body and mind beyond history, to the fascinating truth of the prehistoric past and the present’ Bettany Hughes

‘While the rest of us read words, Alice reads bones - and what stories they have to tell. In her hands they seem slick with life, bearing messages from ancient worlds. I was captivated.' Neil Oliver
