TIME TEAM COMES TO AMERICA -- NEW ON PBS

I'm not sure if we have been able to see "Time Team" in Britain. But now Time Team America begins on PBS stations in July. But if you want a preview, a video is available about Fort Raleigh, North Carolina on Roanoke Island... in search of the first English settlement of North American. That's the colony that disappeared.
Enjoy it at http://www.pbs.org/video/video/1098873031

Amazing what can be done in 3 days with the proper tools and archaeologists, including Ivor Noel Hume, famous for his work in the Southeast.

So glad this series is being exported to the US. It's one of those programmes that perfectly encapsulates what can be done with television to educate and entertain whilst genuinely contributing the body of knowledge of historic Britain. I wish we could get something like this in Australia.

Great blog by the way:)
