This is the village of Nether Poppleton just outside York. As you can see most of the houses are modern, some are Victorian a few are eighteenth or at a push seventeenth century. Up here, it looks very different. Even I could recognize a tradition... (more)al medieval village layout with the main street running up to the church and lots of different plots running off it. And those earthworks to the side of the church are an officially registered medieval site. But the locals think it’s older. They think they can trace the roots of their village back to the Normans or even the Saxons. Are they right? We got just three days to find out.
