The Walrus at work Is Archaeology a thing of the past? (52* d) RE: Is Archaeology a thing of the past? 08 Feb 02


"Time Team" is a TV programme in which an actor (Tony Robinson) is the TV "frontman" for a mixed bag of archaeologists, various specialists (geophysicists, metallurgists, stonemasons, artists, computer bods, suveyers etc.- as required for that particular show), the occasional "celebrity" (usually "b" list) a local historian or two and often a few re-enactors (if required). This group are invited to dig a site from scratch and report on their findings within three days, all infront of the camera. It can be fascinating TV at times but what it is as archaeology, I'll leave to others more qualified to comment.

Is that a fair assessment Fibula?
