Workshops from a Viking campdating to the winter of 873-74, have been unearthed by a team of archaeologists from the University of Bristol.

The campsite, located in the small Derbyshire village of Repton, has been known since the 1970s, but these new discoveries have found evidence over a much larger area, for workshops and ship repairs.

The results will be aired on Digging for Britain on BBC Four at 9pm (GMT) on Wednesday, November 22. The series is presented by former University of Bristol academic Professor Alice Roberts.
