Expedition Unknown

Last week I attended a public viewing of a television programme I was involved in with the Travel Channel. The show is 'Expedition Unknown', the episode is 'England's Vanished Crown Jewels.' It's about the medieval King John, who allegedly lost his baggage train in The Wash, Anglia, shortly before he passed away amidst riotous politics. My role was as geomythologist and geoscientist, the former involved much untangling of the original latin (thanks to all who helped!) which was then used to inform the first part of the programme. The latter was with Martin Bates, augering and geophyzing a possible (unbelievably cold) location.

Here are a few photographs of the shoot, taken by Kevin Efleet - plus a sketch of some of the team from the event itself, in the historic King's Lynn.
