The Saxon Graveyard Beneath A Farmer's Field | Time Team | Timeline

479 миӊ. көрүүлөр125

    The team investigate a possible fifth century cemetery in a ploughed field, where they find a metal shield boss. One male skeleton is holding a drinking vessel. There are hints of much earlier activity as well, including a Bronze Age barrow. Using authentic tools, they fashion a Saxon shield. Conservator Dana Goodburn-Brown examines the details in the x-rays of the shield boss; while Phil and members of Regia Anglorum demonstrate how the shields are used in battle. They are joined by bone specialists Alice Roberts and Margaret Cox, who unearth some coloured beads among the remains.

      Aren't they grave robbing? At what point are human remains not sacred?

    2. Carol Weideman

      What are the laws on farming this field now that they found out it is a Anglo Saxon burial site? I know laws can be very stiff about certain things in the UK and history?

    3. iskandartaib

      Seems to be quite shallow burials.

      Gracias por el video educativo ❤️, todavía veo la criptomoneda como una de las mejores inversiones digitales y me encanta la tecnología cuando se trata del mayor activo criptográfico Bitcoin. Como inversionista, he podido entender que hay dos lados cuando se trata de criptografía y todos tienen sus opiniones cuando se trata de elegir un bando, aunque no estoy pateando en contra, pero lo veo como una estrategia vieja y extraña. para obtener ganancias del mercado, ya que cuando el mercado se vuelve bajista, los inversionistas / comerciantes pierden su inversión, lo cual siempre es doloroso, cuando puede aprovechar el mercado participando en la inversión diaria o copiando la alerta comercial de un profesional que comprende el mercado y utiliza la estrategia. para generar señales diariamente para obtener ganancias para hacer crecer su cartera como lo he estado haciendo con el Sr.Tobby Wald durante las últimas cinco semanas y he podido operar en el día para hacer crecer mi 1 BTC inicial a 4.8 BTC, lo que reconsiderará y verá la inversión / comercio es mejor / rentable. Los análisis del Sr. Tobby Wald son muy precisos y siempre arrojan un gran retorno de la inversión positivo. Se le puede contactar a través de Tel-gram @t para inquietudes inclinadas a las criptomonedas .. @t

      If the women were wearing broaches on their shoulders, were they holding clothes together? What did their clothes consist of? One piece of clothing I heard of was a large woven tube that was clasped at the shoulders.

      I love this man's documentaries. He's always so enthusiastic. Unfortunate the government doesn't protect a land that clearly deserves to be fully excavated. There is so much to learn from the past. Everything from what they did, what they wore, what they ate, their health/age/gender, their ceremonies, and their stories. I guess we are lucky enough to know this little bit.

      1. UncleJoe-v2

        As interesting as I find history, I still don't think it's right for the government to disturb someone's livelihood over a curiosity of the past. If anything is done to that effect, then it should be with the consent of the landowner and he/she should be compensated for their loss of land and revenue.

    22. Jamesandjackie Retimana

      Looks like by the evidence they've got looks like a war camp site that was attacked while the men were in battle. Which was normally typical in those days to take families with you they normally stay back at the rear off the battle in camp. Female with a sheild?? Another's holding a bit off pottery. Still watching it now so see what they find . cool guys

    23. Bill Hunter

      I never understood why they were limited to three days. Was it money or was it a way to bring drama into the show. Just think of how more they could have found if they had been able to work as long as then needed. I also find it interesting that they don't lay out their digs the way most archeologist do. No grids, no layers, no record of soil colors, or soil names. I'm sure if you did a dig in the US like they do you wouldn't be invited back to do an other one. It is fun to see what find. One of the oldest sites near where I live was carbon dated to 12,400 to 12,600 BP.

      1. Michael England

        About the 3 days. . . I was thinking they had to surrender the field to the farmer for planting in 3 days time. . . perhaps they don't have the funding to lease the property for a proper excavation? Just a guess.

    26. Craig Chadwick

      Would love to know what the land looked like at the time of the burials. Because, the dig being out in the middle of no-where doesn't make sense. I'm thinking a forest, any ideas.

      You Guys are the best, you can dig in my Yard anytime.

      The "cheese glue" used to attach the hide to the shield is pretty much the same recipe used by Medieval & Renaissance artists to make up painting panels; it has often survived better than the wood itself.

      I've been considering a newer way of disposing of my remains after I die. It involves flash freezing the body in liquid nitrogen. The frozen corpse is placed into a machine which vibrates at high velocity, and shatters the body into tiny shards. The shards are compressed into thin discs, and dehydrated. They may be buried directly into the ground, and decomposition is complete within a couple of weeks. No body parts or bones for people to dig up and put on display at some point in the future.

    42. Philip King

      Why do all the drawings depicting Anglo Saxons look like Neanderthals tacking a hike. I am sure some of our Saxon ancestors were better looking. Just like Phil Harding. Maybe.

    44. Somebody’s grandma

      I wonder what people would think if they dug on my land. My grandfather’s mule fell into the well, so they filled it in and dug a new one. I can just see some scientists puzzled as to why we buried our farm animals.

    45. Colin M

      I don’t appreciate that Timeline has added these History Hits advertisements with Dan to all their videos and I am considering canceling my subscription since I pay extra for Premium KGup to avoid ads. I am not interested in Dan’s new channel and I consider his ads a waster of my time and am offended that they have gotten around the removal of ads to Premium subscribers by adding ads at the beginning of every video. Sure, I can and do fast-forward past Dan, but I don’t appreciate it and therefore every video, regardless of quality of content, will get a thumbs down from now on.

      Fascinating! But-I haven't seen one of these before-why are they in such a hurry?

    47. Maranatha SOS

      I’m more interested in what they actually found that they’re not letting us know about. “HISTORY” at the end of the briefing: And as usual the locals will see us digging so we will have to come up with another one of those lame history shows where we actually talk about nothing.

      Stonehenge is a Farce; a modern construction of recent times; 1920s. I've visited many sites and felt an energy but at Stonehenge it is completely dead and devoid of any. False discredited concrete junk. They need to stop using it in any archaeological context as it's definitively fraudulent.

      Maybe this wasn't such an issue in 2000, but to avoid contamination in case of later DNA studies they should handle skeletons with gloves. Surely even in 2000 carbon 14 dating was a possibility that would have called for gloves.

      1. Cliff-fishing

        @George Dorn ​ oh, the episode is already that old? ok, that explains a lot, thanks for the information

      2. George Dorn

        It was filmed in 2003 so drones weren't really a thing at that point. LiDAR can be very useful on some sites but this field had probably been ploughed for many years. It is possible that the cemetery boundary may have shown up but individual graves are incredibly unlikely to have been visible.

    74. terryr whitford

      Fabulous find.

    75. Exploration Today

      i hope the farmer is paid for the time he cant use it and dosent have his land stolen from him

    76. Del Spooner

      Field walkers? No ground penetrating radar? You can rent the portable units.

      1. George Dorn

        According to John Gater, the geophysics guy, GPR then was not much use in locating graves cut into the earth and backfilled with the same material. If they had been stone cists then it would probably have worked. He thinks that the current GPR equipment might be more effective. He was talking about trying this approach on an Anglo-Saxon cemetery in a recent video on the Time Team Patreon.

      There was a time that Doggerland was part of the UK.

      North America was like the sandbox of humans, even for Natives-- you can't escape history in England, while the land is so fresh the most you might find is a Native burial ground or colonial era graveyard

    87. Henry W

      It's a little bothersome to see a graveyard dug up, with essentially a treasure hunt approach taken by the team. And really, what is the point? People lived died and were buried, much like today.

    88. Charlene Lee

      I think we have a 1957 Chevy buried on our land. We have dug up six spark plugs, upholstery that matches a '57 Chevy, rear view mirrors, door handles, and various parts. If we keep digging maybe we can restore it. LOL!!

    89. hotspur666

      What about BEFORE the Anglo-Saxons(from Germany)...About Uther Pendragon, King Arthur, Merlin, and all the knights of Camelot in BRITAIN? This means that the first Anglo-Saxons all died violently EVERYWHERE in Brittany, because the Brits did not get exterminated easily!!
