I ended up watching two full seasons before turning it off. I think I got Hubby hooked on it too. You have much to answer for, Jerusha! ;)

I do not watch that much TV  but this sounds interesting. Do you think it is on netflix?

They've all been uploaded to Youtube Laurna. I now feel totally ashamed that I have not seen any of them.

That will have to be remedied.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

I love Time Team although my archeologist friend complains bitterly about the non-realistic nature of them at times.

My TV is internet capable, so I am watching them via YouTube for TV. But of course regular YouTube via any computer or tablet (or even smartphone) would work just as well, as long as you're on a device capable of showing good quality streaming video.

So I watched one random episode this morning of Time team on Medieval England.  I love how they just go to people's back yards and gardens and just start digging them up. I would be like- "Get the heck out of my lovely garden! Your mucking it up!"  ;D It was fun watching the digital reconstruction of what used to be where, and now is something entirely different. I will definitely watch more episodes.
Evie, it did make me think what a change Old Rhemuth would have gone through in a 1000 years.

LOL!  At the beginning of most episodes, it's made quite clear that they are on that particular site by invitation of someone who has found something on their land and wants to know more about it.  But if you just watched a random episode, I can imagine that bit getting left out in the interests of time, especially if it was well enough in the season that viewers understood they don't just start digging up people's gardens without a proper invitation. ;D

Yes, the Rhemuth of Kelson's day would be extremely hard to find traces of, in part due to the Great Fire the Codex foreword mentions happening in the 1300s, though there would still be parts of the City wall and a few of the most important stone buildings remaining from that time (albeit mostly with changes made over the centuries). Oddly enough, property boundaries often are the oldest things to be found in a location rather than specific buildings or monuments, so it might still be possible to make out some of the medieval property boundaries of ancient Rhemuth if one were to look at the modern city from the air. And even if there was more of an effort after the Great Fire to rebuild the city streets on more of a grid, the placement of gates in the surrounding city walls (assuming those were left in the same place, but that seems more likely than adding the work of closing old gates to build new ones along with all the other rebuilding going on) would dictate that at least some streets would be built on more or less the same lines as before, with a more modern grid pattern being created between those main thoroughfares.

My work here is done.   ;D

I once wanted to be an archeologist, but my advisor had a pet tarantula and it put me off a bit.  Maybe it was all those eyes staring at me....  :o

"Time Team" was approached by the Looking for Richard Project with the exact location of where Richard III was finally found.  Time Team thought that it would take more than their allotted three days to do the excavation, so they passed on it.  The LFR team then hired the University of Leiceister Archaeological Service to do the work.  The ULAS found Richard's skeleton on the very first day, exactly where the Looking for Richard team said it would be.  Time Team is probably still kicking themselves...
