Elevden and Happisburgh will feature in a new TV series hosted by British woodsman, author and TV presenter Ray Mears.
History Hit has partnered with the 'father of British bushcraft' on the two new series- Ancient Britain with Ray Mears and Invasion with Ray Mears.
The first episode of the four-part documentary Ancient Britain will air on Friday, July 23, with the three-part Invasion series to follow in autumn.
Ancient Britain will take viewers on a journey back in time to explore the earliest traces of human habitation on our shores, which includes "mysterious footprints" at Happisburgh.
