Tony and the team try to piece together the complete picture of the Manor of the More, a once impressive palace masterminded by Henry VIII's right-hand man, Cardinal Wolsey. In its heyday it was supposedly even more opulent than Wolsey's other masterpiece, Hampton Court. Built in 1520, it's now the site of Northwood Prep School; and Time Team are proposing to dig up their playing fields. Jackie McKinley takes charge. To survey the site from the air, instead of a helicopter they use a drone - a first for the programme. Danni Wootton enthuses over some gorgeous stained glass fragments. Phil's trench reveals signs of a grand gatehouse and a great turret. They are joined by archaeologist Martin Biddle, Tudor historian Suzannah Lipscomb and historic buildings expert Kent Rawlinson.
