The team are in Somerset to investigate the remains of a small Roman villa, dating back to just after the time of the Roman invasion in 43 a.d. But previous excavations suggest it was occupied by local inhabitants rather than Roman invaders. Could it have been built on the site of an earlier, Iron Age settlement? The team are joined by Roman specialists John Creighton and Tom Moore; and Claire Ryley makes an authentic period garden. Members of the Stranglers put in a surprise appearance.

      To a certain extent at least, that was Tony's role. He represented the viewer who knew nothing about archaeology, and deliberately asked the kind of questions that "a Beano reader" as he once described it would ask. So the experts didn't just spout jargon, but explained everything in ordinary English that everyone could follow without needing any specialist knowledge.

    A great series that might still be running today had they not tried to attract a younger audience by dumbing down and getting rid of several experts and bringing in 2 silly presenters, all without telling co creator Mick Aston. Mick left in disgust, the show never did get its younger viewers but alienated many of its existing ones, including myself.

    Those coins can't be from the iron age. The earliest forms of writing ever found in Britain date back to the times of the Roman Conquest, and not before. You wouldn't find coins with the letters "ED" on them in Iron Age.

    • Hogwash McTurnip
      Hogwash McTurnip

      You might like to recheck that one. Do you really think these experts got it wrong? But of course You know better! Lol Iron age 700BC -50AD So that would overlap early Romans. Plus there is a load of stuff online explaining why you Would find coins with letters on them in the Iron Age. Mostly because they have been found! But again You know better. Give it a go. then you might realise that you don't know better!

    I really enjoy the Time Team programme but looking back over its time I've come to the conclusion that with all the roman villas and dwellings that it has rediscovered the Romans with the number of people the had over here in the uk they had a mass exedus of people out of roman Italy into the UK, roman emperors didn't have any Romans in Italy to rule because they where all here building towns city etc with villas, Bath houses, and homes, I'm surprised we don't speak Italian.

    • Hogwash McTurnip
      Hogwash McTurnip

      The 'Romans' weren't actually Romans. They had a policy of forcing conquered peoples into their legions etc. But, and this is the clever bit, they did not leave them in their home country, they moved them hundreds of miles away. So they could not rebel and eventually became absorbed into the Roman system. The 'real' Romans were actually a very small elite, manipulating all those below them. Sound familiar?

    • George Dorn
      George Dorn

      It is very likely that the majority of people living the Roman lifestyle were not incomers but were the local ruling elites who adopted Roman ways. Once the Romans had arrived the choice was either fight and be destroyed or collaborate and maintain, or even enhance, their power, wealth and status as long as they followed orders. The ability to absorb and utilise existing power structures was a major part of why the Roman empire was so successful.

    • Lesley Hawes
      Lesley Hawes

      You have to take into account that the Romans didn't all come at once, they were here for hundreds of years. Plus they brought in troops from all over the empire, they didn't leave Rome entirely empty.

    Great episode as always, but I do agree with Stewart that there was something iffy about that gatehouse. While I appreciate that it wasn't the main focus of the team and the goal for the dig that they set themselves, I do wish that the structure itself had been redug, considering all the questions raised and that it was this zonking massive structure in the middle of the site, to take a second look at it.

      England is proverbial for it's mild weather with occasional heatwaves. Scotland is proverbial for it's wet and cool weather - the equivalent of pnw USA. A "heat wave" is anything above 30 C for England. Further to this, above 25 C already feels very warm to hot because of England's high humidity levels.

      Well, depending on which part, that's because it does NOT rain that much in England. Areas like the south and east are actually rather dry, and prone to semi-arid conditions with not much rainfall whatsoever. Take note of the 'it seems like almost every episode' part of your comment, which actually isn't accurate as most episodes it's usually mostly dry. Although again, to stress this point that the episodes in any series would have been filmed across all seasons of the year, including winter, before editing and broadcast in the following year.

      @Sam N. Sorry Sam, just read your comment. Agreed - as someone in the UK, I find some of those areas of the US far more enticing than an Iron Age smudge on the ground, as is often the case with Time Team. Although those coins were impressive! I would love to visit the US one day!

    • wolfnipplechips
      wolfnipplechips

      @Roger Hearn , I would love to have seen Time Team visit the Arizona/New Mexico/Colorado border. Slightly white-centric view of history there, Roger? Ever heard of Mesa Verde? It puts some of the UK's dark age/early medieval archeology to shame. As does most of the Chaco park area. Plenty of other sites going back thousands of years too.

    • Sam N.
      Sam N.

      @Roger Hearn Given I have personally visited a dig with 3000 year old archaeology, I think maybe you need to reevaluate your ideas of "history worth digging." Maybe our ancient archaeology isn't Roman, but we have our share of stone, timber, and brick buildings; mounds, stone tools, pottery, trade networks, even manmade canals. The site I got to visit was one of those "we are gonna build a road, gotta do the archaeology stuff first" sites and they found an irrigated field watered by canals from the river (which was a viable river then but is now only seasonal). There was evidence of clay plugs used to change where in the field the water went, specific planting mounds/holes within irrigated squares (if you have ever grown squash you know why they had little mounds). Best of all, there were footprints preserved in the muddy field of two adults (seemingly a man and a woman) a toddler, and some manner of canine (whether a coyote or a domesticated canine is uncertain, but either way it probably dealt with rabbits). I have been on many archaeology-related field trips in school, and this random dig was the one that excited me the most, even though some (like Casa Grande National Monument) are far more impressive in scale and fame. Though Casa Grande is very much worth looking up, as are the cliff dwellings in Arizona/Colorado/New Mexico like Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. I have also been to a Spanish mission (San Xavier del Bac) which was founded in 1692, and the current building was completed in 1797. Not super old in European terms, but the oldest intact European structure in the state, and it is still in active use as a church (and as a historical site, of course). I could be at most of the sites I have listed by lunchtime if I left after breakfast (some I could be there before I finished breakfast), and the furthest are a 4-6 hour trip, which is a day trip if I leave early enough.

    Bad English at 0:11 "43 A.D." "B.C." stands for the English phrase "before Christ," but "A.D." stands confusingly for a Latin phrase: anno domini ("in the year of the Lord"-the year Jesus was born).

      @markspc1 Actors?? These people are renowned professors and respected in their fields! And I don't mean the ones they dig in. I think if anyone does not know what they are talking about you need to look in the mirror for that one. 'Homeless looking guy' Give us a break! Do you even have a clue what you watched?

      @markspc1 Erm. I think you might want to look that up. BC counts backwards. AD counts forwards. 100bc = -100ad. 1st century BC is -1AD to -100AD so at the extremes that’s 120 years before than 20AD. Clearly not “the same”.

    • markspc1

      @Maxsdad 53 You are not confused because you are not paying attention: at 33:29 the man wearing blue jacket said "10 20 A. D." and the homeless looking guy wearing white shirt said "first century B. C." As I explained above B.C. and A.D. are the same, so you and all these actors don't know what they are talking about either.

      It wouldn't surprise me if it took that name because it was low and marshy - and Somerset (UK) was it's namesake. Central Somerset in the UK was pretty much constantly flooded marshland up until relatively recently.

    It would be quite a good idea 2 send out the geophysicists to do a lay of the land the day b4 when permitted so they have a chance to have more than a few minutes to assess the area which should help give u a better possibility to make those 3 locations a chance at a better find.

      Well it's a figure of speech / turn of phrase regardless. Owing to the fact that it almost certainly was filmed in one of the shoulder seasons either side of winter.

    R.I.P Victor :( he could always bring the past to life again. Pure talent.

      Time Team channel just a tribute for Victor a couple days ago. But you're welcome. And they are 3 of my favorites to including Tony and Stewart and Jon Gator.

      Damn! Sad I found this out from you. I live in the USA so it was not news here. Thank you for spreading the word, I'm grateful to you for letting me know. Mick, Victor, and Phil have always been my favorite on the show. We lost Mick some 8 years ago so the team will be gone forever at some point and that makes me sad. Really great people, so much knowledge lost.

    Is it coincidence that the pigs are named "Hillary" and "Monica?" Where have I heard those two names used in the same sentence before? Hmm...

      @Debra VanAusdale Yes... 1000 times yes. Why no one seems to get this is beyond me. She literally said to multiple friends that she was going to "have' him...and she did.

      @Keith Staton Monica was and remains a grown woman who can expect to be treated as such. She knew what she was doing, and did it to aggrandize herself.

      Monica was set up and Hillary had been called the most cheated on woman in the world.
