The secret is in the digging

I don't know if it's the digging in the dirt, archaeologist Phil Hardings snassy hat or the enthusiasm of host Tony Robinson that makes Time Team such a great show.

I kicked off my morning by watching Phil and Tony digging for the remains of a castle in Queenborough, England.
Archaeologists seem to spend most of their time on their hands and knees in the dirt, yet they are always thrilled when they find a bit of a wall (somehow they always end up with the remains of a wall or a road) or funny colored dirt that indicates an ancient ditch.

Fuck reality shows like A Shot at Love with Teila Tequila and America's Next Top Model. This is entertainment.
