Even if you can't watch the videos, they've got a good website covering their most recent digs. Maybe there's an archaeological group in your town you could get into contact with?

Oh. Still wouldn't let me view it. I'm in the wrong country.

"The uploader has not made this video available in your country." That's what it says. That's what many of them say. Well, those from BBC and S4C anyway. Is it from BBC?

Thanks for the effort. Hazel

Standards improve??????????????
Hahahahahahah!!! exactly, hazel, don't hold your breath.LOL

I doubt there are many places where repartition doesn't occur, especially these days due to economic circumstances. There are times when such repartition comes in handy, but I must admit there are times when it can be a pain. What I do is pick and choose and leave the rest to those who are interested. Alternatively many good shows can be viewed through on-line services for those who want to catch up on shows already shown, so I guess in that way it isn't that necessaries to have a television set to watch them.Smile

Ah, thank you. I am afraid we do not get the British shows.   Well, first, I do not shelter a television set in my home but that's neither here nor there. We do not generally hear from BBC. They tell me it has something to do with copyrights. This is something I really do not understand because many friends in Britain tell me they watch our shows. How that works is beyond me.
Oh that's a real shame about not being able in your area. I know that there are British shows showing in America, but I'm ignorant of the intricacies of American television so I can't comment further, and would have to hope someone more enlightened would be able to shed more light on the situation. However as you do not shelter a television then maybe such information might be immaterial.Smile

Do you have any kids Hazel? A good way of getting them interested in history is getting them to join the Young Archaeologists' Club. I've still got my badge somewhere but never met Tony RobinsonUnhappy

It's sounds like a very interesting book which many could benefit from reading, and as for the rest I'm sure we'll try our best.Smile

Thank you. I'll take another look at American Heritage on my next trip to B&N. I do get History Today and it is "the greatest". Despite being British (or, maybe because?) it does do American stories which I enjoy. I just wanted to find a similar one done in America. Nothing wrong with being patriotic, is there? :-)
Go for it, Hazel, there's nothing wrong with being patriotic, as long as it doesn't end in fanaticism. Smile 


Oh, I agree there. No emotional,shouting, "holier than thour", flag-waving fanatacism. What started this? I sit here looking at my magazines and am amazed at how many of them come from Britain. Now, I like my British cousins very much and I am proud of what they produce but I keep asking how this happens. Surely we do as well. But, I go through the racks and I don't find anything similar. Who knows where the fault lies? Not I. I just keep hoping.
It has been noted that we in Britain live somewhat in the past in some regards, and I guess those who might have run an empire have such tendencies. Only the other day the question was asked in regards to the large number of historical dramas. I don't think there's too much wrong in dipping a toe in such tendencies, as long as you don't plunge both feet in at the expense of looking to the present and the future.Smile
