The History Channel sometimes misses specific historical stories that the people who uncover the skeletons & artifacts in random excavations help to expose through the diligent work of the BBC's "Meet The Ancestors". A person(s) happens upon bones or fragments at a site they are digging in, they call "Meet The Ancestors", & after careful analysis & historical review of the area, the bones, & subsequent artifacts, it is soon discovered who, what, where, when, & why of the discovery. Whether it's a manor, jail, farm, castle, battlefield, or whatever, "Meet The Ancestors" gets called in & further excavate, investigate, & conclude intriguing facts about the people & places revolving around a single dig that uncovers something that make you stop digging. All of the digs occur in Britain but each episode ends up adding new information to add to existing knowledge of history.
