Description

Tony and the Team descended on the orchards of Kent to search for the site of the lost Anglo-Saxon palace of Eastry - and investigated not one but two likely contenders.

One site seemed to have it all: lots of Saxon brooches discovered by metal detectorists, a prominent position on a hilltop, and what looks like the remains of three defensive ditches on aerial photographs.

But a mile away the owner of Eastry Court, one of the oldest houses in England, believes that his gardens hold the remains of the palace.
