Editorial Reviews

The original U.K. science-reality serie. Go along as archaeologists dig up the past

"Compelling history" —The Daily Telegraph (U.K.)

"Brilliantly executed"—The Observer (U.K.)

In this popular and long-running reality series, presenter Tony Robinson (Blackadder) travels across Britain to unearth secrets from the nation’s rich history. Accompanying Robinson are the Time Team, an eclectic band of archaeologists, historians, surveyors, geophysicists, and other experts, who help him sift through the evidence and piece together the past. With just three days at each site to complete their excavations, they race against time to reveal Britain’s buried history.

In these 12 episodes, the Time Team set to work on sites from the era of the Roman occupation in the first centuries CE. From a mysterious cluster of stones in London’s Greenwich Park to a vast ancient complex beneath a Cotswold field, the crew digs deep to solve some of Roman Britain’s enduring mysteries.

British actor, comedian, and history enthusiast Tony Robinson starred on the classic period comedy Blackadder and has presented numerous documentary programs including The Worst Jobs in History and The Real Da Vinci Code.

Scientific yet enjoyable for laymen. Expert teams kept moving, the show hopping & fun with Tony Robinson (actor, comedian, history buff) pointing the way. Digging in dirt has seldom been so much fun. Massive use of geophysics, then back hoes, on to trowel & brush digs. It opens up what 2000 yr-old Romano-British archeology began as. And fantastic artist renderings help the uneducated-but-interested visualize what the experts see in stones, shards, and coins. The bonus material offers 7 text bios of experts filmed in 12 excavations. More bonus in a viewer's guide. A documentary with the look of prime-time TV.

SUBTITLES provided for all episodes, each a 3-day dig.
____1 TOCKENHAM -in Wiltshire, a pagan-looking Roman figure in 600-yr-old Christian St. Giles Church but the area has NO roman remains to explain the oddity. What's below? An archeological lottery win. Filmed in1994
____2 BIRDOSWALD EXHUMATION -Roman/barbarian border, 18 mile stone Hadrian's Wall, & military cemetery. 1st ever excavation. Disappointment & exciting historical discovery of 2nd century. 2000
____3 GREENWICH -the park's cemented stones are labeled Roman. From what building, fort, temple did they come? An exciting moment of an inscription on a fragment. Finding colorful painted wall plaster is as fun as the team creating a sample site fresco. 2000
____4 ANCASTER -affluent town for 4 centuries. Why did it build a massive defense wall in cent 3 AD? A wide mix of cemetery, industry, & living sites. A spectacular sarcophagus opening. 2002
____5 ALFOLDEAN -Why was this thriving village with a favorite gov. official's hotel deserted suddenly? West Sussex, early Romanized Britain. This project goes massive. 2006
____6 BINCHESTER -Northern Brit fort site & `vicus' or settlement.

5.0 out of 5 stars time team digs up good tv. July 30, 2012
time team is a show that has been on Uk televsion since january 1994! They have made 258 episodes in 19 seasons. That is a incredible job for a show about a group of archeologists who have three days to excavate a site!. Tonny Robinson; a actor and writer most familiar from the black adder tv show is the featured host and he helps out in each episode. This dvd takes a number of shows that had excavations featuring Roman ruins and sites and puts them in a compilation form. The first episode is from the very first season. the rest are from later on. I loved time team on television ,when we were lucky enough to get the show on History 2 via satellite or cable. But it's no longer on! Which seems foolish as you have so many episodes to show by now! The team has only 3 days to accomplish their goals even. Which means they have to move fast and find what they can, the team has alot of fun and you get to discover what they do in each episode. Hopefully more time team dvd's will come out because they go all over finding lots of places and things to dig up, including one episode where they dug up several crashed B-17 bombers in a field. (that episode is NOt on this set) but you get the point. Each episode is about discovery and there's alot of things to dig up in the UK!. the first episode is not widescreen because it's from 1994 , but the rest are as they are from later seasons. If you want to know what's in each episode in this set read the other 5 star review, he did a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite shows July 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
I watched Time Team while I was stationed in Britain and, for me, it was "don't miss it" tv. I've been watching the few sets available from the UK (PAL), but had to get this set when it came out in US NTSC standard. Most of these are great digs, though not all. You can see the team change over the years, some are better than others. The biggest let-down is when Carenza Lewis leaves.

Anyway, if you like archaeology, Britain, and/or Roman times, this set is well worth your time and money.
