    The Mystery of Mine Howe , Orkney

    This is quite an interesting video on Orkney by "The Time Team", the recreation of the tunnel is quite an interesting segment, up to the usual good standards of "time Team" productions

    There were many series by Time Team were made. At the end there was some controversy over about some of their methods. In fact the 'main' archaeologist left after some disagreement. It certainly made Tony Robinson's career!! He is now "Sir" Tony.

    I don't remember seeing this and have just watched it and really enjoyed it. I didn't know they did a history series.

    Since watching this I have found a copy of the Calendar of Letters and Papers relating to the affairs of the Borders of England and Scotland preserved in Her Majesty's Public Record Office London edited by Joseph Bain in 2 volumes (1894). Added to the foot of our page at: https://electricscotland.com/history/borders/

    Time Team ran for about 20 years I think. I bet many of the programs will be online somewhere.

    Thanks. I have seen many of them over the years. By the end it was becoming almost 'predictable'. It certainly promoted Archaeology and History and lots more people take an interest.

    I actually recommended that Netflix stock their programs as they don't have any archaeology programs.

    I confess that I really hate advertising on TV and all those trailer adverts so am now watching much more of YouTube and Netflix
