Robinson and archeology
17 June 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Most people know Tony Robinson from comedy roles, but he has hosted several series of Time Team, where each episode a bunch of archaeologists have four days to investigate a site. The series is well known and popular in the UK.

This explains the part about digging up the church.

A thoroughly good documentary, although there is other stuff that could have been mentioned. There is another legend that Mary Magdalene arrived by boat with her sister Martha and brother Lazarus (of raising from the dead fame) in Marseille and and later spent 30 years in a cave in La Saint Baume, south east France, which is not covered.

The error in transcribing Sang Real could have had better coverage too, but 90 minutes is quite long for a TV documentary.

There are quite a few comedic parts, like the bobbing head Christ figure in the car.
