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.
Time Team Day 29 - 5000 Tons of Stone
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.
Time Team Day 25 - Governor's Green
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.
Time Team Day 14 - Early Bath
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.
Time Team Day 13 - The Lost Villa
We are continuing with our fall edition of Thirty-One Days of Time Team with a flashback to season two.
Why is there a pagan figure buried in a church? Time Team is on the case! They are in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside and the Time Team is here to solve a riddle. There were no known Roman Rules in the area, except for this figure in a church. Victor Ambrus sketches it while Tony reads an explanation for the statue. Why is this statue on the wall? Was this the site of an earlier pagan settlement? You do not want to miss this episode of the Time Team.
The Time Team begins taking core samples of the ground surrounding the church and will do geophysics of the site. Will there be walls found on the site? Did the Romans build something on an earlier site? Was this site considered a holy site to the pagan people? Was this a sacred spring? There could be years of ritual history buried in the pond?
The Time Team heads to the archives. Carenza discovers that there was a possible Roman site in the village and immediately tells Tony the good news. Maybe the Time Team will have to search to a field outside the village. In the field, there were Roman tiles discovered. Will the Time Team be on the verge of discovering a temple? Tony catches up with Robin and Victor to explore the possibilities of what this temple looked like.
One local farm discovered Roman remains while plowing. He meets up with Carenza to field walk. He would like to know more in order to not damage any additional finds. Carenza is convinced that there is something in the field and rushes to get the geophysics team. They have to finish up with the church before they go to the field. Tony and Robin catch up and examine maps of the field over the decades. Robin wants to come up with a master plan of the area to hand over to future generations. The geophysics team starts working in the field.
Mick and Tony then meet up with an expert in Roman Statues to see what the statue was that is embedded in a church wall. Did this statue come from a temple? Or was this statue found in a household? Does this seem to change things for the Time Team? The Geophysics results on the field are showing promise. There was something in the field. So, the Time Team view the evidence that was found by the farmers. Masonry, wall plaster, roofing tiles, and coins were discovered in the field.
The geophysics team will work late into the night to map the field. The Time Team gathers and discusses what was found. Mick believes that there is a villa on the site. Day Two kicks off with the geophysics results. This is the moment of truth for the Time Team and the results are good. There is evidence of ditches and squares hinting at a massive complex underneath. It is clear that something is in the field. More results are coming in and it looks like there was a potential villa on the site. It would the first villa found in the area. The Time Team now faces some challenges before they start to dig. Will Time Team find a villa in the ground? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out!
This would be an excellent episode to show for a history class. There was a good debate on whether or not they should dig the site because of the geophysics results which could lead to some good discussions about archeology.
Good morning, the Thirty-One days of Time Team continue with a search for the real-life Flintstones.
Time Team is hot on the trail a place where there is evidence of human settlement dating back to the Stone Age. Stone Age England was a very different place. It was covered in lush greenery. Lions, rhinos, and elephants wandered around. The Dig is in a clay pit that dates back from the Victorian period. In the pit, there is an area where Stone Age tools were found. It is a site that dates back to 400,000 years ago and the Time Team is working with the British Museum.
Phil and Nick Ashton have started the dig and are finding good evidence of people making flints and tools along with a rule. This site is rare for the Time Team. Tony asks if they will find human remains on the site and Phil says they will not. One of the Time Team’s tasks will be to find the plants that the Stone Age people lived with. Tony then learns that environmental archeologists use vole teeth to date a site.
Carenza is at a site five miles away from the initial trench and the Time Team will excavate another area where there were Stone Age Remains found. It was an archeological area that has not been excavated lately. They will have to clear some foliage first before the second trench goes in.
In the first trench, a piece of hand ax is found, and Phil is ecstatic with the find. They slowly dig around the dirt to free it and it comes out of the ground. The hand ax was the single most important tool for the Stone Age Man. Geophysics will be working to find an ancient river that ran through the landscape. It will take time to build a picture of the landscape. Finding the river will help archeologists look for additional Stone Age sites. Stewart is field walking the area and looking for archeology on the surface.
Day One ends on a rainy note, the trench is covered to prevent a mud hole and the archeology continues. The work to find plant material continues despite the rain. In fact, a mussel shell was found while digging and would hint at something being preserved. Clay is put into buckets and hydrogen peroxide is added to dissolve the clay leaving behind organic material.
Day Two kicks off with Phil working to make a stone tool. He tries to try it out by chopping down a tree. Geophysics continues with their search for the ancient river. It will take yards and yards of cord and avoiding man-made features to find this ancient river. In Carenza’s trench, they are finding some interesting finds. Carneza calls for Tony to bring an intact ax head and Phil. The environmental trench is struggling to break down the clay to determine what organic material was around during the time of the Stone Age. Victor paints a scene of life at the riverbank. What was life for these people? Tony meets up with a computer graphic artist to see what the people looked like. What will the Time Team find? Will they find that elusive whole hand ax? Will they find the remains of an ancient river channel? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out more about the Stone Age people of Britain.
This would be something interesting to show a landscape class because of the environmental archaeology involved with the Time Team’s search. It would be a good episode to help teach about experimental archeology as well.
Time Team Day 11 - Prehistoric Fogou
We are continuing with our Thirty-One Days of Time Team and we are throwing it back to the past with an episode from Season 3 and a prehistoric Fogou.
Tony is roaming a tunnel under a garden, what was it doing there? Who built it? What was it used for? The Tunnel is a feature in the center of a garden. The Garden belongs to Jo and Tony meets up with him and Robin. They talk about the feature and a map of the garden. This map was drawn up by an antiquarian. The trio walks around the site. There seems to hint at another tunnel. What will the Time Team discover about this feature?
Can the Time Team find the other tunnel? Can they find the site of the Iron Age settlement associated with the fogou? The site is now home to the 19th Century. The Time Team will not be able to dig at the fogou itself because it is a protected site. Jo had dowsers on the property and they said that there was a second tunnel. Mick is skeptical and will wait for the geophysics results.
The geophysics results hint at something curving that joins up with the fogou. What was the purpose of the fogou, that remains a mystery? Were they a place of refuge? A tunnel to escape warring armies? Or were they just used for storage? Mick and Tony explore the fogou and examine the tunnel carefully. There were ten fogous discovered in Cornwall and they were near rivers. There were more fogous discovered in Brittany and they are even more numerous in numbers. In Ireland, there were 1,000 fogous discovered.
However, the big question looming over Time Team, will they find more of a fogou. Trench One goes in and immediately a water pipe is discovered. Mick and Phil give the geophysics team a hard time about discovering a pipe. Tony catches up with Mick and Phil. He brings out a map that the water dowsers drew. The water dowser hints at a different location for the tunnel extension. Mick is skeptical about water dousing. Phil recommends that the water dowser goes over the land again. Tony tries out water dousing. Mick agrees to put in a “new age trench” in the ground.
Victor works on a drawing of the enclosed settlement and Robin, Jo, Carenza, and a local archeologist work with him on the drawing. The Time Team is hoping to find evidence of settlement. The dowsers’ trench is coming up empty as well. Mick makes the call to put in another test trench to see if any additional evidence can be discovered. The Time Team plans on looking at the landscape to see where they can look for the fogou extension. Is the extension under the house?
At night, the Time Team gets together for a sum up and the only trench that seems to show promise is Carenza’s trench which was dug over the wall of a potential enclosure. It was the one area of the property that was not disturbed when the house was built. So her trench is an extension and an Iron Age pot piece is discovered. Will this pot hint at an Iron Age settlement? What would a settlement look like during this period? What would the people have done?
Will Time Team find additional hints of settlement? Is another fogou on the verge of being discovered? Will Mick get over his feelings against water dowsing? Will Phil be turned into a tin miner? Tune into the rest of this episode to find out.
As frustrating as it was at the start of the episode, the Time Team turned it around and managed to find additional evidence about the history of the fogou. The section on Tin Making was fascinating and Phil was delighted with his efforts in making tin. This would be a good episode to show for a fun day.
