4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what it says on the jacket!, 15 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
If you're a fan of 'Time Team' and enjoy the exploits, expertise and eccentricities of Mick, Phil, Tony, Carenza and company, then you really ought to have a copy of this on your bookshelf. Although it doesn't go into as much detail about any particular dig or site as some of the other 'Time Team' books, it ties all their digs and programmes into a cohesive timeline through history. Plenty of pictures and anecdotes, and a delight to dip into when there's no 'Time Team' on the box...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to a historian's library, 20 Feb. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Ultimate Time Team Companion: an Alternative History of Britain (Hardcover)
Calling this 'an alternative history of Britain' is, perhaps, a bit pretentious but it is a book which should grace the shelves of any serious historian. An easy read but full of serious work.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent guide to world history for any age of reader, 23 Nov. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Ultimate Time Team Companion: an Alternative History of Britain (Hardcover)
This book is well written, in a style that allows even the most ignorant to gain a greater understanding of the major events in world history and to place them in chronological relation to others. Relating these to factual finds in the excellent Time Team programme simply makes history real, tangible and accessible to all. I would recommend this book to children, parents and grandparents!

4.0 out of 5 stars A clear, well written guide to all the Time Team digs., 10 May 2000
By 
This review is from: Ultimate Time Team Companion: an Alternative History of Britain (Hardcover)
Whilst this book bills itself as a "fascinating view of British history" it is essentially a chronological list of all the Time Team digs to date. Don't get me wrong, it's a well written book with some lovely photographs, interspersed with some of the major events in British history, but it's not the history reference that you may at first think.
If you're a fan of Time Team (and I am), then this is a book you really should have. If you merely want a history textbook, there are more appropriate ones available.
Because of the sheer number of digs Time Team has had, there's not much room for detail. If you want more of an insight into how the Time Team concept works, then you may be better off with "Behind the scenes at Time Team" which goes into detail on five different digs.

This review is from: Ultimate Time Team Companion: an Alternative History of Britain (Hardcover)
This book is so easy to read and understand that you don't realise you are actually learning something as well.I particularly liked the way that the Time Team Investigations were interspersed with short Historical background knowledge as well as superb pictures. reading this book is like watching a Time team programme and there's no greater accolade than that in my book!

5.0 out of 5 stars This reflects the balance of what I like about Time Team, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is much more along the lines of my enjoyment gained from Time Team investigations during it's early concept years and is an enjoyable reference tome. Does not reflect the hijacking of Tony Robinson into 'his' Time Team from Tim Taylors concept. It having now become a TV production that has somewhat lost it's way from the early days with a lot of dumbing down in recent years,

Wish I had bought this before Time Team Dig Book, which will stay gathering dust on my bookshelf, In stark contrast, 'Ultimate Time Team' will remain a chosen companion of reference for some time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant archaeological summary, 21 Sept. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a long time fan of Time Team, I bought this, to make up for the fact that there would be no more programs made - thank goodness for the repeats on TV. This book give the kind of excellent real life survey of British Archaeology one has come to expect from the Brilliant Time Team, together with personal glimpses of the people involved. An excellent book, for anyone interested in Archaeology, let along avid fans of Time Team, such as myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read., 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One criticism Is that the authors tried to cover too wide a time scale. Could have done with some items omitting for inclusion in a further volume.
