Episode Summary

EDIT
Knockdhu, County Antrim
AIRED:
Heroes' Hill Time Team brave the harsh conditions of fierce winds, strong rain and getting lost in thick fog to reveal the secrets of one of the biggest man-made monuments at Knockdhu in the County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The headland at Knockdhu on the County Antrim coast offers breathtaking views - on a clear day you can see Scotland - and also one of the most testing digs Time Team have ever undertaken. Working together with archaeologists from Queens University in Belfast, Tony Robinson and the team excavate the ditches and banks used by prehistoric tribes to defend the remote hillside site. After three days of work, the pieces begin to fall into place and reveal the work of a sophisticated society.moreless

      • Tony: This has to be one of the most spectacular locations we've ever been to on Time Team. This is Knockdhu, a magnificent promontory overlooking the coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland. I can hardly see my hand in front of my face at the moment, the wind's practically blowing me off the hill, but once the fog lifts, you'll see spectacular views of the Mull of Kintyre behind me and the coast of Scotland way over there. Better still, you'll see this, one of the most impressive and mysterious prehistoric monuments in the whole of Ireland. We're about to embark on a three day quest into prehistory to discover what happened on top of this hill.

      • Tony: Are these man-made flints?
        Phil: You haven't just found them.
        Tony: I did, just back there, don't sound so surprised.
        Phil: In that case then you won't need any tuition about that one.
        Tony: That's where someone has walloped it, probably with a hammer stone, and that's called the bulb of concussion.
        Phil: Well done, you're almost as addicted about flints as I am.
        Tony: No, I'm really not.

      • Francis: I believe we are standing in the middle of a bronze age roundhouse, or a roundhouse at the very least
        Tony:All I can see are a load of tussocks that look very much the same as all the other tussocks everywhere around here.

      • Phil: It's rubbish, absolutely abysmal. Rubbish knapping right across the site.
