We were honoured to catch up with Ken Follett, internationally bestselling author of epics including Pillars of the Earth and Fall of Giants. In our exclusive Teatime interview, Ken tells Tim Taylor about the inspiration behind his latest Kingsbridge novel, The Evening and the Morning. As you'll see, Ken is no stranger to Time Team and he shares his fascination with reconstructing ancient crafts and techniques from stone-masonry to forging coins. Which is Ken's favourite cathedral? What's he currently researching? Where is his fantasy dig site? Watch below to find out!
