Description

After it ceased to be a centre for Christian monks in the 1530s, Lindisfarne, or Holy Island, off the far north-east English coast, became a military base.

There was a garrison there for 250 years, and the island is as full of military archaeology as it is religious.

Time Team came to investigate a field in the middle of the island's village, known locally, for no obvious reason, as 'the palace'.
