Secrets of the Celtic Grave tells the epic story of a search to unearth the truth behind the remarkable discovery of a 2000-year-old Celtic Grave that was found by metal detectorist Mike Smith in an ordinary field in the wild west of Wales in 2018. 

We follow the story of the dig from start to finish as the archaeologists from the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff slowly uncover its remarkable secrets. The evidence accumulates but surely paints a picture of the person who may be buried there. 

To unearth the truth the film explores the epic and dramatic Roman invasion, a turning point in the history of the Island. It goes on to explore whether the person in the grave fought in this epic war against the Romans. Furthermore, it asks whether the Celtic Grave tells us that struggle against the Romans was very more extensive than ever thought, extending way beyond the Roman Frontier into the wild west of Wales.   

Secrets of the Celtic Grave was broadcast on Sunday 13th June, 8 pm on Smithsonian Channel.

 You can watch the programme on S4C Clic or BBC iPlayerEnglish subtitles are available.
