Part 12: Steptoe Et Filius, Isle of Wight
Aired 24 March
A couple of years ago, when a water-pipe trench was being dug across a field at Yaverland, on the Isle of Wight, a local archaeologist discovered evidence of Roman occupation on the site. Although he had time to carry out only a limited excavation, the material it produced - including marble fragments that may indicate a high-status building nearby - was enough to spark Time Team's interest. What was actually here on the high ground overlooking what would have been a navigable creek in Roman times? As usual, the Team has just three days to find out.
