The hubbinator and I have been watching Time Team on amazon Prime. For those of you who have never heard of the program, it started sometime in the 1990s and ran for a rather large number of years.
We are on Season 9
The premise of the show is: a team of diggers and archeologists team up to work on a site for 3 days. They usually start with a question they want to answer and then using ground penetrating radar (or whatever they call it), they look for anomalies that could indicate buildings or disturbed ground.
They’ve found everything from Bronze Age, Iron Age, and Roman settlements to missing Medieval castles and a downed World War fighter.
But the best part is when they find a shard of pottery no bigger than a nail clipping and can show the pot it came from. The hubbinator and I have a bet that the smaller the shard the bigger the pot.
It’s good fun.
Until next time.
