The team attempt to solve the secret history of a well-preserved female skeleton found in Launceston, Cornwall, and examine a possible connection to a leper hospital. Was a female skeleton found in Cornwall a leper, a Civil War casualty, or a plague victim? Time Team has just three days to solve the mystery of the Cornish skeletons. They aim to determine the context of the burials and investigate the boundaries of the leper colony. The excavation faces challenges due to disturbed land from sewage works and the possibility of finding traces of leprosy.
