Governor's Green - Portsmouth

Tony and the Team head to Governor's Green which is behind Portsmouth's Tudor naval defences.
Here they search for the site of a 13th-century hospital founded by monks.
A small part of it has been converted to a beautiful church, but no one knows where the rest of it was or what it looked like.

Although part of the building still stands, initial results from the trenches makes the task even more confusing and the Team soon find that the archaeology doesn't match the evidence of where the hospital should be.

Will they be able to crack the secret of Governor's Green?
Will they be able to resolve the clash between the diggers and the surveyors?

As usual there are just three days....
