  • Dorchester, Oxfordshire
    Unaired Pilot Three local people asked the Team to answer the following questions. Dorothy Godfrey: Dear Tony and the Time Team. For years, members of our allotment association have been unearthing bits of pots and the odd human bone. We'd like to know more about what's going on underneath our allotments. Roy Bowles: Dear Time Team. 1,350 years ago St Birinius built a cathedral on a site in Dorchester. I think we might be able to find it. Can you help? Jerry Nudd: Dear Mick and co. Whilst putting in a fence post for my son, I found some rather unusual remains. Can you tell us what lies under the rest of the field? Dorchester is situated 10 miles south of Oxford on a historical crossing point of the River Thames. So Time Team had the weekend to answer the three questions. They stayed at the George Hotel and the headquarters for this episode was at the Abbey Guesthouse.moreless
