Time Team Traveller
Matthew Williams, a professional archaeologist known to us all from Time Team gave this year’s Annual Lecture. He has been associated with the programme which is presented by Tony Robinson, since 2002. Employed as a trench supervisor, he took part in various excavations ranging from Bronze Age to World War II sites and also took part in costumed re-enactments.
Matthew explained how the archaeology and the filming of the programme were put together.The filming was undertaken by three film crews on the days following a meeting of the archaeologists.
Behind the scenes, guides were used to show the general public around the site to explain and answer questions. There were also catering staff, security personnel and about 60 production staff involved with each programme.
