Early September 2003, Washingborough Archaeology Group took part in a number of field walking exercises for Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’. Below are some of the WAG
members photographs and experiences.
Matt Vickers’ account of the event
Washingborough Archaeology Group were contacted in mid-August 2003 by production staff at Time Team to see if we could assist with field
walking on the site of an Anglo Saxon cemetery.
Pauline Loven’s account of the events
it would be boring if we stayed in one field for three days, so we're also going to be investigating the landscape nearby to work out why the
Anglo-Saxons might have put their cemetery here…

Another Channel 4 programme ‘Britain AD’ (shown Autumn 2004)
Our fieldwalking work at Fiskerton was filmed in October 2003 for inclusion in a Channel 4 documentary with Francis Pryor. Francis Pryor is well-known for his work at
the Flag Fen Bronze Age site near Peterborough and often appears on Channel 4's Time Team. The programme includes a look at the archaeology of the fenlands.
