Good morning, we are going to continue with our Thirty-One days of the Time Team for October, and let us throw it back to an episode from series 13 and the history of the Industrial Revolution in Manchester. The run time for this episode is 48:47.
Underneath a car park in Manchester lies the remains of a mill. Manchester was a powerhouse in the cotton industry and it was a city that had a lot of mills. In 1780, the first cotton mill in Manchester was built and was built by Richard Arkwright. It housed the first steam engines. It is now buried under a car park. The Time Team has three days to discover and recover one of Britain’s most important historic sites. Will the Time Team find the mill?
Tony catches up with Francis Pryor, Phil Harding, and a local historian. There was a layer of cobblestones found on the site and these stones come from a layer that would have been the mill yard. There was plenty of documentation and maps that show the mill, however, they are unreliable. Mike Nevell, the local historians talk about how the site developed and that there may be multiple buildings on the site. These different buildings would demonstrate the different phases of development. Mike is optimistic about finding the mill. Phil is thrilled with the dig, Tony points out that Phil likes prehistory. Phil replies that this site is the prehistory of the Industrial Revolution.
Trench One goes in and it is hoped that at least one side of the mill. A mill built in the Victorian Era was destroyed during the Blitz and the site has not been rebuilt. As the asphalt is removed, Phil discovers a wall. The trench is expanded and more of the wall is revealed. Tony catches up with Mike and talks about the history of Manchester while looking at a map from the 1700s.
The Mill would have had an impact on the country. The mill would have been a boom for Manchester and would have shocked the people who saw it. People across the country came to Manchester to see the mill as if it was a tourist attraction. This mill was the start of the Industrial Revolution. Richard Arkwright, who built the man, was the father of the factory system in Britain. He was a socially awkward man but grew wealthy through business.
Back at the car park, Phil strongly believes that he has found a mill wall. Francis is skeptical that what was found is a wall. Phil says he will find the proof that he found the wall of the mill. Trench two goes in over the middle of the mill. The Time Team is going to find where the mill was powered. However, as they dig, they are finding fire-scarred bricks. The mills were vulnerable to fire. Additionally, there were broken clay pipes found on the site. The workers would have been puffing on those pipes while they worked. There were plenty of fires that happened in the mills at Manchester. These mills would have burned down and would have been rebuilt.
The mills caused the population in Manchester to explode. This population explosion leads to horrible living conditions in Manchester. Karl Marx would have visited his mate Fredrich Engels in Manchester. Here they would discuss the working and living conditions for the workers. Tony catches up with Helen Geake about Marx’s writing. Stewart is on the job as well, working on a survey on the site. He is working with Helen to look into the living conditions of the workers.
The Time Team starts recording their findings. They have discovered a door and a wall from the original mill that was built by Arkwright. Additionally there are sites for the mill engine. Will Phil prove that he is right about the wall? What else will the Time Team find out about the mill? Tune into this episode to find out more.
This was an interesting Time Team. The archaeology was fantastic for the site and it gave a glimpse into the history of the Industrial Revolution. This would be a second good episode to show while teaching the history of the Industrial Revolution.
Thirty-One Days of the Time Team has drawn to a close and we are throwing it back to season 2 and the final episode of the season. The Time Team is investigating the treasure of a Roman field. Tony still has his long flowing hair in this episode.
Hundreds of Roman finds have turned up in a large field. Broaches, pottery, coins, and a key were found on the site. A local farmer wants to know if there was a building on the site. A Roman key was found on the site, so where was the building that goes with the key. Additionally, were some rectangular marks on the ground. What were the marks on the ground? Why were all these finds found in the area?
Tony and Mick are looking at the field from the air. Trench One goes into the middle of the field because geophysics seems to hint at something in the ground. This trench will allow the Time Team to test the geophysics results. The geophysics has shown several ditches; however, Phil is only finding one ditch. Roman pottery is showing up immediately which means the Time Team will not be short of finds on the site. Coins have been found on the site as well. All the finds that were initially found were exclusively Roman.
Despite these little finds, there were no substantial amounts of building materials found on the site. Mick would be happy to find more building materials instead of the little finds. Tony teases Mick about wanting to find bricks. The Time Team will also use metal detectorists to help the find additional metal finds. Tony hopes that the Time Team will find evidence of a building. One suggestion is that the building will be timber-built instead of stone-built and that it was a farm site. The farmers would have adopted Roman ways and would have been upwardly mobile. The Time Team breaks for lunch to talk about the possibility of the site.
Trench One finally confirms that there were two ditches. However, the second trench is not located where geophysics said it was located. The dry conditions of the land are proving to be a challenge for the results. Geophysics is showing some things but not others. Stewart is plotting the ditches and the plot seems to hint that there were different periods of Roman occupation on the site. The Time Team goes over the results again at the end of Day One. Two more trenches will go in again. The archelogy is just below the surface.
Phil spots something as Trench two goes in. There are bits of crushed pot and charcoal in the new trench. It is evidence of building on the site. Was this a rubbish pit? Or is it evidence of a house? This second trench will be extended to try to show more of the site. Trench three goes in to see if there is a floor level on the site. Overnight, the trenches will be soaked in water to help make digging easier.
Robin Bush catches up with Tony at the end of Day one and shows Tony two Roman coins and talks about the history of the coins. Robin concludes that there is the possibility of finding Iron Age finds on the site as well. The Time Team will also perform an experiment: they will recycle glass. Roman Glass is a rare find because it was often recycled. So this experiment will help the Time Team understand the properties of Roman glass. What will Time Team learn about this site? Is this a settlement? Or is it a farm site? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out.
This would be a good episode for a fun history day in the classroom.
Good morning, we are continuing to wrap up October of the Time Team with an episode from season six. The Time Team finds itself in Bawesey St. James, Norfolk.
The Time Team is investigating a deserted church. However, locals are finding metal dating back to the Iron Age. Was this site a settlement? The Time Team is broadcasting the dig live. The site they are investigating is huge and has never been properly investigated. A large number of finds have been found by the locals hinting at a large settlement. So what was this site? What will happen during the live show?
Aerial photographs show that something is going on with the site. The finds have come from a variety of periods: from the Iron Age to the Norman Age. There was one excavation at the remains of the Norman Church during the 1930s but there were no records kept. Trench One goes in on a boundary that shows up in the aerial photograph. If there was dating evidence, Carenza will find it.
Neil opens up trench two at the church. The church has a large tower which hints at its importance. In fact, there were some high-status finds found earlier that may hint at a monastery on the site. Stewart is out and about looking at the landscape. Geophysics is also at work and had to adjust their equipment to read through the sandy soil. There is an army of field walkers and metal detectorists on the site.
Mick and Tony talk about Mick’s attitude towards metal detectorists. Mick loathed them because they would rob history. However, it is a small number of metal detectorists do this. Normally, they work with historians and archeologists to provide them with additional finds and information about the site. The field walkers find their first find: a silver Saxon coin. The coin would not have been worth much and would have been the equivalent of a penny. A second coin from the Anglo-Saxon period is found, this coin would have been more valuable. Both coins are very rare finds and place at the site during the Saxon period.
Carenza is making good progress on trench one. There is a ditch on the site and Carenza feels like it comes from the Iron Age. Trench Two yields a body. Is this a Christian burial on the site? On the other side of Trench Two, there is something interesting on the ground. The Time Team also recreated a Saxon village on the site and will be recreating a piece of Saxon jewelry.
Geophysics throws the Time Team another target. It looks like there was an entrance to the church area or a harbor. The site is sitting above a marsh. Trench three goes in. Is it some sort of entranceway? Phil is supervising this weekend because of an injury. Will Phil keep himself from digging in the trench? The skull was found in medieval and was buried during that period. In fact, they are finding a glazed medieval floor. A shattered piece of tile is found with the creators’ name on it. Trench two is shut down and the archeologists put their skills elsewhere. Trench Four goes in because it is becoming clear there was activity on the site.
What was this site? Why were there so many finds? What was going on at the site? How many more trenches will be opened up? Will the Time Team find the rest of the boundary? Tune into the rest of this Time Team to find out more!
This one would be a Time Team for research purposes and not to show in the classroom.
Good morning, we are continuing to wrap up October of the Time Team. This time the Time Team will have to look at under 5000 tons of stone for their excavation.
What was this site? It has been called everything from a stone-age homestead to a fortress. This site sits on a hill on a sheep farm. Its crumbling walls still provide an interesting puzzle. The site was nicknamed the castles. The Time Team will have to find a date and the function of this enclosure. A ditch may provide environmental evidence. What will the Time Team discover about this site? How many stones will the Time Team have to move to learn more about the site?
The Time Team converges on the site. Stewart is looking at the walls and geophysics is doing its work. An environmental archeologist looks at the ditches. There was a lot of curiosity about the site. However, the site has been investigated once and that was in the 1920s. The archeologist was local and he looked in the enclosure for internal structures. There were no internal structures. There were no finds made at the time. However, local sources seem to hint at fossilized trunks and flints found at the site. There were photos of the site made during the 1920s.
The Time Team starts moving stones away from the site of the gatehouse. Another trench will go in on a wall in hopes of finding datable evidence. Since it is a dry-stone structure, it is difficult to tell the difference between rubble and wall. Geophysics is having a little bit of difficulty with the trees and the stones so John will rely on the knowledge of a local farmer to find a place to start geophysics.
Tony catches u with David Mason a county archeologist to talk about the site. It is County Durham’s least understood site. There are a variety of stories about the site. The rock enclosure was home to a local tribe. The Romans used it as a penal colony where slaves were kept. Tony concludes that there were plenty of stories about the site that eventually people believed the stories. The variety of stories will prove to be a challenge for the Time Team.
Mick and Stewart talk with experts from English Heritage to talk about the possibility of the site being Roman. The experts do not necessarily believe that the site was Roman. That said, the trenches are progressing well. The entrance or gate site’s archeology is proving to be a challenge. Unfortunately, the site has provided no finds so environmental archelogy will take center stage. A third trench is put in on the south wall. Moving stone on trench three will be a huge job.
Phil is getting somewhere in trench one. Maybe he is hitting the original ground surface. Mick catches up with Phil to talk about the wall and the ground level. The interior is going to be cleared so that geophysics can find evidence of the site. At the end of Day One, there is a Time Team catch-up. They go over the photos taken in the 1920s. Mick seems to believe that it was a defensive site based on a small body of evidence. What were these walls protecting? Was it really a defensive site? What will the Time Team find out inside? Tune into the rest of this Time Team episode to find out more.
This would be an interesting show for a class on landscaping because environmental archeology took center stage. This would also be a good episode for a fun history day in the classroom.
Good morning, we are nearly there with our Thirty-One days of the Time Team, and this time we are heading to Governor’s Green in Portsmouth.
Portsmouth’s History as a seaport stretches into medieval times. The Time Team will look for the history of Portsmouth, especially a hospital that was on the site. The patch of green has seen a lot of action over the years. A Tudor Mansion was built on the site. During World War II bombs were dropped on the site. Will the Time Team be able to discover the medieval history of the site? Will they be able to discover this history without the bomb squad?
Portsmouth has the best deep port in England and is important to the defense of Britain. Henry VIII fortified the harbor. The site sits in one of the last remaining fortifications. Tony catches up with the local historian to talk about the old medieval hospital and the history of the site. The Chapel was built in 1212, eventually becoming part of a Tudor mansion. Then the armed forces used the chapel for their services until World War II came and the chapel was bombed. This is the first time that the site will be dug.
A history of the area was published in the Victorian era and included a list of the buildings on the site. Can the Time Team trust this source? While geophysics does its thing on the site, Stewart and a geography professor are looking at maps of the site, overlaying the Tudor Maps with modern maps of Portsmouth to determine how accurate they are. A map from 1584 shows a detailed map of the hospital. Armed with this map, Stewart will plot the location of the old medieval road to determine where the hospital was. How accurate are these old maps? These maps are almost too good to be true for the Time Team.
Tony then talks with Helen Geake and Carole Rawcliffe talk about the history of the hospital. The hospital was dedicated to St. Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. The hospital was built by the Bishop of Winchester. He was the most powerful man in England, and while King John was away in 1214, he ruled England. The Bishop of Winchester established the hospital to look after the poor and the sick. Carole is thrilled with the possibility of learning more about the history of the site because a loft of the records about it was destroyed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
The site potentially has the oldest stone buildings in Portsmouth. After John Gater gets his results back and a large trench one goes in. However, it immediately reveals a large modern concrete surface. They will have to get beneath the concrete to find more evidence. Trench two also goes in and there is evidence of a medieval building.
Mick and Carole talk with Tony about the chapel building. In Medieval Times the chapel would have been used for the hospital. The people would have been able to watch mass and be taken care of by laypeople. The impression would have been you were in a church where people were laying on the side. The dig is off to a good start! What will the Time Team discover about the chapel and the hospital? Will the bomb squad have to be called in? Tune into this episode to find out more about this chapel and hospital!
There is a fun little thing about this episode: Victor Ambrus the artist sneaked a drawing of Phil, Tony, and Mick in his artwork. This would be an episode to show for a history fun day and for research.
Thirty One Days of Time Team Continues with an exploration of Treguk Castle. What will the Time Team discover about this castle?
Tregruk Castle is one of the biggest castles in Britain. It is also the most mysterious castle in Britain. Why was this castle so big? There are no buildings in the castle. It is found in the Welsh marshes and was built to keep the Welsh in check. The owner of the castle wants to learn more about the castle. He had worked on clearing the forest in the castle and it changed the atmosphere of the site. What will the Time Team find out about the castle?
The inner bit of the castle is devoid of buildings. What was going on at the castle? Why was the castle devoid of buildings? There should have been bakehouses, private quarters, even a great hall in the castle wall. Geophysics will have a problem with the tree roots. However, Mick has trench one and trench two put in at the gatehouse. Mick points out that the gatehouse is a good place to start off the dig because people drop things in gatehouses.
Tony catches up with Mick in the garderobe, where people went to the bathroom. This will be another place to dig for the Time Team. People drop things down the toilet. This will provide dating evidence for when the castle was occupied. Another trench goes in at the garderobe. Helen Geake catches up with a Welsh Historian to discuss the castle and the family who built this castle.
Phil discovers a clay pipe in the trench and he is one happy archeologist. This is dateable evidence for the Time Team. Phil believes that this hints at a later floor level and that the earlier floor was above that level. When the owners removed the drawbridge, then the hole was dug to allow people into the castle. In the meantime, Stewart studies the landscape and learns more about how the castle was defended.
Tony then catches up with the site director to lay out what the castle would have looked like. The space that needed to be filled was massive. John Gater and his crew continue to geophysics and survey the site to determine the full scale of the interior of the castle. However, John is running into problems with the tree roots. Stewart reports back to Mick and the castle owner talks about the earthworks he discovered that could date back to the English Civil War. Was this castle used during the English Civil War? How much more of the castle was changed during the English Civil War?
Phil continues to discover more modifications to the gatehouse. On the other side of the gatehouse, the Time Team is starting to make finds.
At the end of day one, a trench goes into the castle. This trench is to test the geophysics of the site. Tony is relieved to be making progress on the site. Mick talks about the gatehouse and how it may not be the main entrance to the castle. Its placement is unusual for Mick because it would have been difficult to bring in supplies.
Who built this castle? Why was this castle built? Who lived in this castle? Why did the buildings disappear? What was going on inside the castle? Has the Time Team bitten off more than they can chew? Tune into this episode to find out more about the mysterious Tregruk Castle.
This episode would be an excellent one to show in a middle school history class when the students are studying castles as well as a high school history class.
Good morning, we will continue with our Thirty-One Days of the Time Team continues with a trip to Hooke Court. The building is now used as a school.
The Time Team is investigating a school that was built in the Middle Ages. It is currently used as a school and the teachers would love to tell their students about their school. Time Team has three days to find out more about their school. The Hooke Court School was built on a ridge of high ground and would have been good for occupation. The Time Team has an excellent area to work with. What will the Time Team find out about the school?
Geophysics is working on the site immediately. Tony learns more about the school archives. There is plenty of names and evidence available that tells bits and pieces of the school. However, none of this information is really concrete. Was this building built during the Civil War? An architectural historian does not believe so. He sees traces of a Medieval building. There are different styles of windows which further tells the story of Hooke School. Perhaps this building was part of a Medieval manor house and was part of a surviving bit.
However, there could be 500 years of building in the ground. The Doomsday Book records that there was a manor house on the site. The Time Team talks with the retired deputy headmaster of the school. He shows the Time Team photos of a demolished wing of the school. The old wing of the school was part of the medieval manor house. When the house was demolished, the remains were carted away. The building was two floors and would not be considered a medieval hall. Trench One goes to find out more about the medieval building that once stood there.
The geophysics results come back and are showing some good results for the Time Team. John Gater is thrilled with the results and carefully explains the results. There is good evidence of walls and even a fireplace is shown in the results. Legend tells the story that there was a fire during the English Civil War that destroyed much of the building.
It only takes seconds before the first finds are found. There are pieces of roof found with nails remaining in them. Tony catches up with Jonathan a historian who takes a look at the archives. He talks about the owner of the houses and about the English Civil War. Phil continues to make finds in Trench One, fining roof tiles, fine glasswork, and pottery dating back to the English Civil War. Time Team is starting strong with the dig. They found evidence of the building as well as evidence of a moat.
A second trench goes in and immediately a wall is discovered. This wall is very different from what was originally found. It is even different from what Phil has found. So the trenches will have to be extended to see if these are two different buildings. The Time Team will have to carefully unpick the different phases of building on the site. What will Day Two and Day Three bring for the Time Team? Will the Time Team locate the great hall? What will the students learn about their school? Tune into this episode of the Time Team to find out more!
This was a cool episode to watch and it was cool to see the students be involved with the dig. They were even helping with geophysics on the site. So this would be a good episode to show in class especially when the English Civil War is being covered.
Thirty-One Days of Time Team continues with an Abbey that was not there.
The Time Team travels to the Welsh border in search of an abbey. This abbey was occupied by Cistercian monks. It has been lost for centuries. Local archeologists have found evidence of a chapel, but no abbey. There are large earthworks on the site that the locals believe is the abbey. Will the Time Team have more success in finding the abbey?
The local archeologists have found a small chapel on the site that is too small to be an abbey chapel. There is no date on the building and the locals have continued to excavate the fields. Mick is in his element with this dig because he loves all things with monasteries. Mick and Tony talk about the potential of discovering a lost Cistercian Abbey.
The Time Team knows the abbey is not on the chapel site but can be further up the field. There is a 1650s map that shows a stately home on the site. The stately home could have been converted from the old abbey. An earlier dig showed that there was a fine spiral staircase on the site. Tony questions Mick about the potential. Mick sees the cloistral plan in the map, however, architectural archeologists casts doubt on that potential. The field will have to be geophysics.
The first trench will be opened up on the staircase site. Additionally, the Time Team will be looking as to why the chapel was built on the site? Helen Geake makes her way to the chapel site and looks to learn more about the chapel. The Chapel has undergone many renovations. Alan Wilmhurst, who has been excavating the chapel has learned a few of its secrets and was able to walk Helen through the changes the chapel underwent. The Time Team will focus on the nave to discover evidence as to when the chapel was first built.
Matt in the first trench will look for the staircase. There seems to be a lot of backfill on the trench. The abbey was only occupied for sixty years. Its life span was short and it could be an early abbey that was unaltered over the years. Would there be any substantial remains to be found on the site? Helen then catches up with historian lan Thacker and the Earl of Chester’s role in the abbey history. The Earl of Chester lured the monks away to his estate in Leek. He was trying to guarantee his passport into heaven. Matt continues to look for the staircase. A second trench is put in on a potential wall of the abbey.
Stewart and Mick walk the site and do a survey using old-school methods. Phil joins up with the pair and a survey is done. In the chapel site, the Time Team is discovering plenty of skeletons. This is preventing the chapel site from being dated.
The next day, the Time Team will be digging in two countries at once, a first time for the Time Team. The dig continues and Tony catches up with the dig site. He is flummoxed at the relationship between the two sites. What will the Time Team discover about the site? Will they discover an earlier period of the abbey? What will the field tell the Time Team about the Abbey? Are they really on an abbey site? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out more!
This is a story full of twists and turns. Was the Time Team really excavating an abbey? This episode would be good to show for a fun day and could generate a good discussion on what happens when archeology shows something different.
Phew, this is a busy month of doing Thirty-One Days of Time Team and we will wrap of season two with a dig into some Saxon Graves. This is another flashback episode to an earlier season of the Time Team. Tony still has his hair in the episode.
1400 plus years ago a group of pagan warlike foreigners invaded the area and did not go home. Who were they? What were they doing in England? Tony Robinson strolls a site in Wiltshire. The locals and the developers were told that there are ancient graves on a piece of land. Who are the people buried on this site? The Time Team has three days to dig to find out more about the site before the developers come in.
The site is unimpressive with piles of rubble around it and the ground is full of rubble and modern garbage. This will throw off the geophysics team. Mick makes the call for getting a machine in to get rid of the topsoil. Nobody knows how big the Saxon graveyard is. In a backfield, Carenza will be looking to see if the Time Team can determine the graveyard size. It was one area that has not been built on.
The first layers of topsoil are cleared and the developer turns up to see what the Time Team is doing. Mick wants to know if there are any services in the area, they should be aware of as they dig. The developer believes not. As the topsoil is pulled back, Phil jumps into the hole left behind. Tony wants to know how they can tell if there are graves in the ground? Phil quickly demonstrates this, but Tony cannot see it.
Carenza gathers information on previous excavations done in the area to help provide a bigger picture of the area. Tony believes it would be excellent to find the settlement where the Saxons lived. Mick and Phil are looking at a grave. Tony then catches up with the developer. The neighbor next door while building discovered graves. He was flooded with phone calls in regards to what was found and was billed for an excavation. He was left with land that he could not sell. Local archeologists worked on excavating graves next door to the plot and have discovered additional graves.
Who were the Saxons? Why did they come to England? The Anglos were undergoing a civil war and the local king invited them in as mercenaries. They liked what they saw and decided to stay. If the Time Team finds bodies, will these indicate the mercenary history of the Saxon? Tony turns to Robin for more information about the Saxon mercenary. Robin highlights the battles that the Saxons took part in and hints that the Saxons cemetery could be civilian in nature.
Mick and Carenza are doing a survey of the land and go next door to a neighbor’s house. The neighbor had a balcony. They are trying to look at the land to see if there are more places to put in trenches. There seem to be hints of prehistorical burial mounds. The locals had known about these mounds for years. When the land was dry there were marks in the ground that hinted at burial mounds.
At the end of part one, there is a Time Team first: the Time Team has discovered a skeleton and it will be taken out. There were three graves found with three bodies. What else will the Time Team find in this Saxon Graveyard? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out more.
This Time Team would be good for a fun day in a history class.
Good morning! Thirty-One Days of Time Team continues with a look at the history of Ffrith, Wales. Time Team looks at mysterious bathhouse that might not be a bathhouse.
Back in the 1960s some local archeologists dug some trenches and discovered a series of walls, pot, and Roman coins. Ffrith was the center of Roman occupation in Wales and for decades Roman finds have been discovered. Did these archeologists find a Roman Bathhouse? The Locals want the Time Team to dig the site again to see what is. Is it a Roman bath? Why is it there? Time Team has three days to find out.
The Time Team will dig in the previous trenches. Tony asks if it is good archeology to re-excavate the original trenches to see what was found. The first step for the Time Team is to map out potential walls based on the original dig. To the homeowner’s relief, there will be no digging under the greenhouse. Trench one goes in in the back garden and a second trench will go in an area behind the fence next door. The results indicate that there are hints of a curved wall underneath.
The second trench immediately reveals results: there is a stone wall. The fence between the two gardens is taken down. Mick and Tony meet up with John Gater and they look at older geophysics results. The Time Team is turning their attention to a playing field. It was a scheduled monument because of the Roman finds on the site. The authorities have permitted them to dig it. Geophysics will resurvey the area.
The earlier finds have been fantastic. Some tiles were used to heat bathhouses and pottery found. Time Team will look at these earlier finds to see what they can tell the Time Team. Tony takes a look at some pieces from Roman armor and beads. There were also wall plaster and hairpins found. These are tantalizing hints at what the building was.
On day one the skies open up and rain starts. The dig continues, while the other Time Team members look at archival materials and draw up pan interpretation as to what the bathhouse looks like. Trench number three goes in, and stones are found. What were these stones? The stones are unshaped. Will the third trench yield any finds, continue to watch this episode to find out.
Mick and Tony go back to Trench One and Trench Two for a catch-up. There were bits of stone and modern rubbish. Phil is on top of the curved wall, and he shows a picture of the site in the 1960s. The trench will be expanded, and this expansion should yield some new finds. Was this site Roman? Tony catches up with Historian David Mason to learn more about the Roman occupation of Ffrith.
Time Team does a catch-up in the pub. The lack of finds is worrying Tony. In the larger trench in the field, there will be an inspection trench dug to see if it is worth digging. Tony then asks to fill about the curved wall. Phil teases Tony about it not being a curved wall. Is the wall straight, curved, or squiggly? Tune into the rest of the Time Team to find more about the wall. Is the Time Team going to discover a bathhouse? Or are they just going to discover a fenced-in field?
This was a funnier Time Team because of how everyone at the start was mistaken about the site is a bathhouse. Phil was hysterical teasing Tony throughout the episode. This would be one episode to show in a history classroom for a fun day.
