Not a film at all!
6 February 2000 | by davidf33See all my reviews

This is actually Tony Robinson hosting a series or archeological digs around the UK. Apparently he took a course at his local University in Archeology to fill in a summer and then teamed up with his professor to make 4 series of these programmes! Programmes cover a weekends dig, together with 'bring the past to life' demonstrations.
