Heralded as the grandest, most extravagant event in Norwich's history up to that point, the aftermath would see the city torn apart with disease. How did this end up in a scene of horror in Augustine Steward House in Tombland, and what was visited on the family therein? Find out now.

Episode Eight - Hell Comes to Norwich (Part One)

In this episode we start our two part look at the gruesome stories behind Norfolk's brush with almost total annihilation in 1349. The country was ravaged by bubonic plague, and the people of Norwich rushed to finish the city walls that may not have only made them safe from disease, but given them strength to rival London as England's capital city. What went wrong? Find out in this episode, and stay tuned for part two, when we see how things can not only always get worse, but how a whole city can turn into a living Hell.

Episode Seven - Children of the Wolf Pit

In this episode we take a look at the life and strange times of two children who crawled out of a pit in 12th century Suffolk. Where they came from remains a mystery that no-one has been able to explain. The most curious factor was the colour of the their skin - bright green. Were they aliens? Fairies? Refugees? Or something altogether different?
