Ian Fleming, the Archaeologist - Episode 124

In this episode archaeologist and James Bond expert Edward Biddulph explores Ian Fleming's forays into amateur archaeology in Norfolk, England. It wasn't his first experience of archaeology, having also dived with Jacques Cousteau near Marseilles in France to see some underwater archaeology, but at Creake Abbey in Norfolk he worked with army sappers on an early form of metal-detecting.
