An Extraordinary Journey Through Time
Villages have held a sway over our collective imaginations for well over a millennia. But how well do we really know these bastions of Britishness?
Dr Ben Robinson is a British archaeologist and television presenter.
Ben's television and radio work includes many research and on-screen contributions to archaeology and history programmes. He has taken Griff Rhys Jones for a microlight flight, kept Rory McGrath upright as he 'slodged' on stilts, immersed himself in a mist of preservative to show Mary-Ann Ochota prehistoric boats, shared a balloon over Bristol with Helen Mark of BBC Radio 4's Open Country, and has helped the Travel Channel's Expedition Unknown in its quest to find King John's treasure.
Ben has co-presented two series of Channel 4's Britain's Most Historic Towns with Professor Alice Roberts. He has also presented the BBC series Pubs, Ponds and Power: The Story of the Village and Villages by the Sea.
