It was in 2016 that a seventh series began with just three specials before the full series in 2017.

William the Conqueror's increasingly unusual funeral. Rotten Romans: Caligula declares war against Poseidon, god of the sea.

Savage Stone Age: HHTV News: Bob Hale's Stone Age Report.

The three specials marked anniversaries through the year: 400 years since Shakespeare died, the BBCs 'Love to Read' campaign and 350 years since the Great Fire of London.

There was a slight change in cast where the main stars Jalaal Hartley, Tom Stourton and Jessica Ransom continued with new members.

The (not-so-)carefully reconstructed funeral of a tribal chief. Woeful Second World War: Mary, the heroic carrier pigeon (animated).
