Join Time Team on an archaeological discovery of Britain's past.
13 riveting episodes set in diverse locations from Barra in the Western Isles to Dungannon in Northern Ireland. Time Team have only 3 days at each location to excavate, retrieve and unearth history from the Palaeolithic to the Industrial age.
I have always been interested in historical locations, like the pyrimids of Egypt, Machu Pichu, Stonehenge and many other places, so when I caught this show on TV i was quite interested, especially with the interesting spin that has been put on what can quite often be a very dull subject, that of archaeology.
Normaly with archaeology once a site is discovered it is carefully excavated and documented, and this is quite often a very slow and time consuming process.... Well it was until Time Team came around.
Time Team is presented by Tony Robinson (of Blackadder fame), and features a team of archaeologists and other experts as they attempt to uncover and discover what life must have been like at each site they attend..... But they only have 3 days in which to do it. I have found that this cut down approach to archaeology makes this show very watchable, and yet still very informative, as it really quite amazing what they can find in only 3 days.
This DVD set contains 13 episodes covering everything from the Palaeolithic age (Stone Age) all the way up to the Industrial age (18th-19th Century). If you are not a history buff in any way then I suspect that this will not interest you, but if you are, or you know someone who is, then don't hesitate to buy this DVD set.
