River Wye

Bridge over the River Wye:::Roman
As some readers will know, the stream in my farm flows into the River Wye*, So NB tonight: C4 TV UK, by the renowned producers of Time Team, the first of a new series starts at 08.00hrs BST. Extreme Archaeology is the title. Don't miss it. . . or if you do . . follow the C4 History Website reports which are usually available in plain text as well as graphic-heavy versions.

In the new series (which is sure to be syndicated world-wide) attempts are made to excavate British archaeological sites that are located in difficult environments. Tonight they will try to beat the tide to collect evidence for the Roman bridge between England and Wales at Chepstow.

Reviews of the recent C4 TV Extreme Archaeology presentation are invited. Would I be too hard if I were to entitle my own review: "Puppet on a String"?
