Bonekickers Full Episode Guide

  • Gillian risks everything - her reputation, friendship and even her life - on a quest for her deepest obsession: the greatest sword in history. Steeped in Arthurian legend and the poetry of Tennyson, Gillian's insurmountable obsession drives her team away. Will her brilliant mind and life's research be enough to protect her from Henry Timderdyne and find Tennyson's Gleam?

  • A British World War One tank containing the burnt remains of six bodies is uncovered in France. Evidence of a war crime emerges and an international feud with French and German archaeologists is ignited by Gillian's dominance of the finds. Violent acts at the dig site ensue. Someone is trying to cover-up the truth.

  • The looting of Babylonian relics from the Iraq war starts a trail that leads to the team's doorstep and intertwines with the destiny of the Middle East. A sacred tablet predicting the future of Iraq puts the lives of an opportunistic war-zone looter, Jimmy Paul and dodgy antiquities dealer, Max Garris, in mortal danger and the team is enlisted to help track down the Tablet of Destinies.

  • The high-risk exploration of secret Celtic chambers beneath the Roman baths unlocks a love story past and present. The ancient and tragic tale of Celtic warrior queen Boudicca and Roman soldier Quintanus is unraveled by Gillian and Ben who confront their own past relationship amidst dark, claustrophobic chambers.

  • The discovery of 18th-century bones in the Bristol Channel brings to light an extraordinary conspiracy. Anyone who has investigated the final journey of the HMS Somerset in the last two hundred years has died under suspicious circumstances. Black presidential candidate Senator Joy and Dr. Adabankah, an academic from Ghana, arrive in Bath - but what are their motives, and who can our team trust?

  • The excavation of medieval soldiers from the Crusades leads to the hunt for the True Cross. Brilliant archaeologist Dr. Gillian Magwilde and her team must use their skills to unlock the truth. Meanwhile fanatical right wing Christian, Edward Laygass, reawakens a force of violent modern day crusaders.
