I will miss Tiny Tony
And the mighty Philip Hardon.

better than anything ever issued from the entire history of the programme (or at least the half dozen episcoldes i have ever seen)
I liked 'two men in a trench'.

In the ones I saw........
They had a plan (objective).
Did preliminary works to look for best spot to dig a trench or two (geophysics, map regression, etc etc).
Dug some trenches
Got dirty and wet
Usually didn't find much.

Seemed very like field archaeology to me Smile
Pub Dig had beer! (and other brews)

And somehow the trenching managed to look more 'real' than TT - the only trenches I've ever dug round the back of a pub certainly came with free beers anyway, and also found XXXX-all Cool
Raksha Dave's post about Time Team is an interesting read: http://digventures.com/2013/03/29/tools-...adventure/
Yes, that is a excellent blog post - thanks for flagging it up. Apart from the 3 day evaluation as commercial norm bit, reckon she's pretty much spot on throughout.

I agree with your assessment. An interesting read.
