Now in it's 12th series, Time Team is a programme I have grown up with and come to know the 'team' as almost part of the family. Now as an adult I can fully appreciate the historical value of the show as well as the entertainment value. Tony Robinson is a great host with an 'ordinary joe' approach to Archaeology that neither excludes nor patronizes the viewer. Mick Aston is the go-between professory type whose novel outlook on a 'stuffy' profession is fresh and appreciated. The diggers are obviously the crux of the show with Carenza Lewis, Mick Worthington and the irrepressible Phil Harding on hand to uncover (or sometimes not) the secrets that lay buried. And then there is landscape archaeologist, Stewart Ainsworth, whose insight and knowledge of the areas is amazing to watch and, after finding hidden evidence in maps and photographs is often the star of the show.
So well done to all who are involved in Time Team and I hope this continues to be a long and happy friendship.
