Filming for The Great British Dig, a new Channel 4 series, has taken place in Norfolk, seen mostly around King's Lynn.
The Great British Dig follows Hugh Dennis and a team of expert archaeologists as they excavate back gardens across Britain, searching for treasures hidden beneath the surface.
Several local homes have got involved, volunteering their back gardens for the programme.
They have been spotted filming in north Lynn, where they reportedly found a castle wall, and in The Walks, an 18th-century park, and on Losinga Road, where an excavator was used.
The filming is believed to have stopped, though some of the digs continue.
