I agree with you there, I thought it a shame that there was no mention of the work that Michael Jones did a few years back.

Also, does anyone else think that Tony Pollard is beginning to sound like he's going Native after too many years with GUARD??? ;-)

I must be alone in being unimpressed. I thought that it was badly researched, pandered to "pop history", had that shite Gregory woman in it and agree that Bosworth 1485 by Jones was more rewarding and better sourced.
Apart from the fun to be had seeing yourself on the T.V. and spoting friends it did nothing for me.

Come on, lets be honest, Time Team has always been aimed at pop histroy, thats the point of the program it is for the vast majority of public not for history geeks and resreach.
