    • Tony: A few years ago the new owner of the sleepy Somerset field made a remarkable discovery. Buried away amongst the brambles and trees she discovered this. Intrigued she did some research and she discovered that these ruins had once part of a powerful industrial machine, a water mill which could well have been putting bread on the table of people 'round here since the Domesday book. But despite her best efforts we still know very little about Buck Mill. So we've been invited here for the next three days to reveal the secrets of this powerful feat of engineering.



      Right, time to get out noses to the grindstone….Sorry about that.


    • Tony: As technological breakthroughs go, the water mill was a big one; it would have transformed the lives of anyone around it.


    • Tony: It's one o'clock Day One, all the diggers have gone to lunch except for Phil who is of course, a bit of a nutcase. And down here under all this rubble somewhere we think we've got the Mill wheel. The very heart of all the activity.


    • Tony: At the site of our possible early medieval mill, Matt and his diggers have spent a day and a half sifting though clay without a single find. If you through life couldn't get any more miserable for them, it's started to rain.
