A program following an archaeological team as they explore various sites in Great Britain, answering questions about the past through excavation and associated research. This program focuses on Thetford Grammar School in Norfolk, which was the site of a large medieval Dominican friary and, possibly before that, a Norman cathedral. Time Team try to find out if there are any traces of the cathedral left beneath the ruins of the friary. They find no evidence of the cathedral, and conclude that, at best, the Normans utilised preexisting Saxon structures, and didn't build their own cathedral. They investigate the structures and materials associated with the medieval friary extensively, helping to illuminate this period of the site in more detail. They involve the school students in various aspects of the project
