The distinctive grass-covered remains of the deserted medieval village of Ulnaby are a landmark in the Durham countryside. And although they've been photographed, surveyed and written about, they've never been dug. But now Tony Robinson and the Team have been invited to physically unearth the secrets of one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in Britain.

  • Lol Stewart may have lost the foot wrestling match but he won the landscape battle! Never underestimate Stewart's knowledge of a landscape! I Love The Time Team!! R.I.P Mick. Love seeing him in these episodes!

  • I enjoy this series but man are they guilty of recklessly overusing the word "geo-phys" and "geo-physics", I can't stand it. They've used the word so much it's lost all meaning.

  • Don't get me wrong. .. I love this series ... but I cringe every time they refer to artifacts or clues as "archaeology". Maybe it's a TV thing. 🤔 noun: archeology the study of human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains. (From Oxford Languages)

Brain talk. I stretch. I breathe. And I fall to sleep watching Time Team. It's a documentary history lesson sitcom game show. It's relaxing. No politics, no controversy, no abuse, no violence, no arguing. Zzzzzzz Zzzzzzz ❤

Maybe I'm just hearing things in my old age. Geophiz sez 'there are no stones!' so I guess we were all group hallucinating. If that's the case, pass it around again, I need a bit more! that would make a really great T-shirt for geophiz; "There are no stones!" (On the back) "Nothing to see here!"De-nile ain't just a river in Ejypt!

  • Weak episode. "We think..." "Maybe.." "Possibly..." Many times they just come up with one interpretation that could be interpreted many different ways. I love this show, but sometimes they just sort of verify a village was where they knew one was anyways through records. They obviously knew it wasn't an Iron Age settlement; "verifying" it was medieval is not a huge leap. But, they had to make a show out of it.

Because obviously a monk in a monastery who was more than likely noble born and had never seen a plough close up knows more about what a plough should look like than a peasant farmer.

    Mike RadfordMike Radford2 жыл мурун
    • Perhaps the stone wall was from a slightly later structure, which was erected after the timber house had collapsed?

      ersikillianersikillianЖыл мурун
    • I could think of several reasons. The timber wall with its filling material (usually wattle and daub) was already in place, and that is usually much more insulating than stone. But maybe it was showing signs of weakness or decay, so they decided to use the stones taken from field creation or another building falling to ruin to reinforce it. And if so, perhaps they only became available over time and not all at once.

One time it was 'anglers', so we all dressed up as fishermen, and a mate of mine actually inflated a rubber dinghy in the pub bar, and two of them sat in it with fishing rods. The landlord (who had no idea we would turn up) loved it, and went and fetched fish fingers to hang on the lines. Mind you, we bought an awful lot of beer and cider...

What irks me is when the women 'dare' to be so 'confrontational', some guys come down on them like a ton of bricks, as if personally affronted and annointed as Beelzebub himself to condemn to them to Hades forever. Carenza especially gets this over the top mistreatment. They take no account of her senior position in the hierarchy, so no only her right but her duty to intervene - she just has to zip it and preferably disappear according to them. Mother, Daddy or incel issues, I suppose.

I know he would have been able to understand without explanation, but he doesn't lose awareness of the viewers. this has made this part of the success of this whole series.

  • Apparently, his hair was very very dark (almost black) curly and long. He had a beard and the photo I saw depicts him in a turtle neck with a corduroy jacket. Very seventies looking (think: Tom Selleck).

    • @Alexis Welsh And going down the pub afterward for a memorial wine toast. Except for Phil. Always a pint of ale for Phil. Even at the end of filming for the 100th episode, the champagne corks popped, but there was ol' Phil with a bo'l of ale.

  • What's with the hand digging of the heavy, wet sod? As an old experienced "sod buster" who does golf course maintenance I can say that's a back breaker! Possibly the back-hoe wasn't allowed in that area because it was too soft, or just restricted.

    • They said something about English Heritage at the beginning, I don’t think that EH let’s them use mechanical diggers on their sites.

    • +KYIRISH1 The digger appears at about 16 minutes in. My guess is that it's up to the property owner. When they want the turf replaced as it was they cut it into squares and carefully pile it up. When flat they do it with a mechanical turf cutter but that wouldn't work here. The later appearance on Google Earth shows almost no sign of the trenches.

    • +KYIRISH1 I just paused to ask the same question, especially since at around 9:00 when Phil is teasing John, you can see Ian Barclay, their digger driver. So the driver is there but no digger?

    • @Stannous Flouride No it was called the Duke of Wellington about 150 yards west from the Spotted Dog. It closed in 2010 and was demolished a couple of years later. The site is now housing.
