Time Team to be axed

'Still Digging' the remaining cast of Time Team shown on Issue 124 British Archaeology magazine

After 18 years, 20 series and more than 40 specials, it has been announced that Time Team will air its final series on Channel 4 in 2013. A number of one-off specials will continue to be aired into 2014 and the series will be repeated on More4 and Channel 4.

Channel 4 proposes to increase its focus on "new and innovative history programming". New commissions will include exclusive access to archaeological discoveries such as the recently announced 'The King in the Carpark: Richard III', and 'The People of Stonehenge', 'The Hood' - as well as 'Attack of the Zeppelins' with Hugh Hunt.

For further information see the Channel 4 press release.
