This new offering from the Time Team duo of Robinson and Aston brings another entertaining and light-hearted book to our shelves. 'This is the story of a fantasy dig readers undertake in their back gardens to find out what bits of rubbish are buried there'. What starts out as a small hole grows into a full-scale excavation involving mechanical diggers, and reveals the remains of a Roman villa under a proposed supermarket. In amongst this story, the authors answer many of the frequently asked questions about archaeology and archaeologists, about the history of the discipline and about how a dig works. Robinson and Aston are entertaining and amusing as always.

Good introduction to creating your own archaeological dig, what to expect and how to record anything you do find.
