Rutland’s very own castle, Oakham Castle, is on TV this weekend, when Channel 4 Time Team reveals the progress and results from the dig carried out in June 2012.   Tony Robinson and archaeologist Dr Phil Harding will look at the artefacts revealed, which date back to the 13th century.  Oakham Castle –  or at least what we have today – is a small and quirky example, most famous – if it is famous at all – for its display of horse shoes presented over the centuries by visiting dignatories.

Channel 4, Time Team, this Sunday 10 February at 4pm.
