Archaeology for the masses. From what might be perceived as a 'stuffy' subject, Time Team has popularised the subject with its enthusiasm to uncover the secrets of Britain's rich and long history. From sites which pre-date the Pyramids, to the Second World War, Time Team will entertain you and enrich your historical knowledge of Britain.
S16E05 - Risehill, North Yorkshire
First screened: 1 February 2009
Blood, Sweat & Beers Tony Robinson and the team head to the Yorkshire Dales for an archaeological first as they investigate a settlement built by railway navvies, arguably the toughest and most lawless breed of the Victorian era. The team uncover the houses and workshops of the Risehill camp, built during the construction of the Settle to Carlisle railway, and discover the story of a resilient community who survived the harsh environment and poor working conditions to produce a monument that is still in use today.
