Episode 2 – Rúin Na hÚaighe (Secrets of The Grave)
Filmed on location in: Ireland
Episode Two takes us to a critical time in Irish history – the move from paganism to Christianity. Medieval records don’t give much information on the lives of ordinary people, but now DNA and other scientific techniques like osteo-archaeology are opening fascinating windows into the past. Evidence from burial sites in Ireland show that ancient pre-Christian beliefs continued long into the Christian era. And now, a shocking discovery in County Roscommon suggests that some feared the rise of undead creatures.
