In Tudor times disease and death were never far away, as were other more mysterious terrors that many claimed were lurking in the dark.
In this Halloween special, curator James Grasby visits 500-year old Little Moreton Hall in Cheshire, to find out how the Tudors protected their homes against evil.
James meets house staff who reveal strange relics of our past and he comes face to face with a mystery that lay hidden in plain sight for centuries until someone looked closer.
Guided by folklore experts, James journeys beyond the veil to the stranger side of history.
And he discovers why Halloween’s roots are more ancient than we might think.
