Hidden relics from the river Avon - River Hunters


Join River Hunters' river archaeologist expert Gary Bankhead as he pulls four historic relics from the river Avon, Warwick. River Hunters pairs Beau Ouimette, a river detectorist with over 30 years’ experience, with presenter and keen swimmer Rick Edwards, as they search the UK’s waterways for archaeological finds. Using state-of-the-art technology, archive maps and contemporaneous accounts from the period, Beau and Rick perform the first underwater archaeological digs in some of the most exciting and iconic historical sites in Britain, often in dangerous and fast-flowing water.
