Welcome to the Unofficial Time Team Website
Hello dear visitors, to let you all know, the forum got attacked yet again. I thought about getting rid of it completely, but a few people were requesting it back, so have decided to give it one last try. I noticed that all was going well until I placed a link on this page. As soon as I did that I was getting fake registrations straight away. So I think this maybe where the problem was coming from. With that in mind, instead of putting a link on here, I will just provide you with the location and you can copy and paste the address so you can join us.
I'm hoping this is the case and it will all finally stop, as I said this is the final try, thank for your understanding.
Please be patient as this site is currently being restored, so there will be a lot of dead links.
What is time team
Time Team is a British television series which has been aired on Channel 4 since 1994. Created by television producer Tim Taylor and presented by actor Tony Robinson, each episode features a team of specialists carrying out an archaeological dig over a period of three days, with Robinson explaining the process in layman's terms. This team of specialists has changed throughout the series' run, although has consistently included professional archaeologists like Mick Aston, Francis Pryor and Phil Harding. The sites that have been excavated over the show's run have ranged in date from the Palaeolithic right through to the Second World War.
Time Team developed from an earlier Channel 4 series, Time Signs, first broadcast in 1991. Produced by Taylor, Time Signs had featured Aston and Harding, who both went on to appear on Time Team. Following that show's cancellation, Taylor went on to develop a more attractive format, producing the idea for Time Team, which Channel 4 also picked up, broadcasting the first series in 1994. Time Team has had many companion shows during its run, including Time Team Extra, History Hunters and Time Team Digs, whilst several spin-off books have also been published. The series also features special episodes, often documentaries on history or archaeology, and live episodes. Time Team America, a US version of the programme, has been broadcast on PBS from July 2009, and co-produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting and Videotext/C4i.
Various figures involved in British archaeology and heritage management have recognised the influence of Time Team in promoting the discipline amongst the British public. Equally, some figures in academic and professional archaeology have expressed misgivings about the series, arguing that it presents an inaccurate picture of field archaeology to the general public.
The Time Team Guide to Experimental Archaeology
(Trial And Error)
Channel 4: Sunday 17th March 2013 @ 4:25pm
Tony Robinson celebrates the more than 150 practical experiments and re-creations that he and the Team have conducted over 20 years in order to unlock the mysteries exposed by their digs.
Rebuilding - and even reliving - the past is a controversial area of archaeology. But it's one that Time Team has long championed, and one that has yielded some amazing results.
This programme revisits some of the programme's greatest hits, from recreating individual objects such as Stone Age axes, Roman pewter bowls, medieval pottery and a Stone Age sword that throws new light on the myth of King Arthur's Excalibur, to building an entire Iron Age house and a Roman machine that lifted water from a deep well.
The programme also revisits some of Time Team's forays into living history, from finding out what it felt like to be in Dad's Army to surviving 24 hours as a Victorian prisoner, in an attempt to see the past through our ancestors' eyes. Plus how a huge and - at times - contentious experiment for the programme finally solved the riddle of Seahenge.
