Any news on when the special for this series will be aired?

The food was really good last year, the only problem is i never feel like mattocking after a 4 course lunch
Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.

You were lucky, one I worked on the first door-step salmon butties came round at 9.30am! Spent the rest of the morning trying to get in the right frame to do justice to the 5 course lunch....couldn't believe we got paid as well Smile

The food is absolutely fabulous, and I've never felt the archaeology has suffered due to the TV format.

I did once, though, slip in the back of a shot with the express intent of recording a section, so anyone playing the drinking game would be forced to down a bottle of whisky }Smile

On a sadder note, I did get through a card today with the programme air dates. The season will be split with the last six shows in the Autumn. The front also had a pic of Tony pouring pennies into a wheelbarrow with "Time Team Season 17 - worth every penny" written. I remember at the time they were talking about budget cuts for the show. Looks like its future isn't guaranteed, which would be a shame

whats the drinking game, do you have to drink if you see any recording? Or are there key phrases as well, like "I think we've got a wall here!" "what's your best find", etc.

My favourite ones are the ones where Stewart Ainsworth solves everything/changes everyone's previous interpretations/brings up a load of more interesting research questions with landscape analysis.

It's pretty similar to what I remember, although seeing anyone recording = down a bottle of whisky }Smile

How come the rest of us are supposed to have done all that kind of stuff before knocking up the WSI for the evaluation trenching in the wrong place?

Hmm, yeah.
not supposed to dig until you've sorted out what question your dig is going to answer. Preservation in situ being the modern mandate.

Makes for dead boring reports! :face-crying:
Always good finding something spectacular though, after demonstrating conclusively in advance that there's nothing there (sorry, clients!) }Smile

}Smile I'm fond of doing that too! The Holderness plain in east yorks and South Yorkshire are great places to dig.
