The wait is finally over! Time Team America premieres tonight on PBS at 8pm!
Part extreme adventure, part hard science, and part reality show, Time Team America takes viewers deep into the trenches of America’s most intriguing archaeological sites. In each episode, the show’s team of top scientists has just three days to uncover the buried secrets of their assigned dig. Every hour counts as they piece together the past using the latest technology, decades of combined experience, and their own sharp wits. Far from the comfort of a science lab, Time Team America faces searing heat, driving rain, alligator-infested swamps, frayed nerves, and the inevitable technical setbacks. Through it all, the audience peers over the shoulders of diggers at work, eavesdrops on intense conversations between experts, and shares the rush of discovery as artifacts emerge from the ground.
Head over to the Time Team website and have a look at the Site Report for the Fort Raleigh dig. There you’ll find maps, pictures, videos, and loads of other supplementary information, including why Time Team America chose Fort Raleigh as it premiere site.
Finally, we’re looking forward to hearing what YOU have to say about the series premiere. Feel free to post your review in the comments section or send it over to the Sexy Archaeology mailbox and we’ll post it on the site!
