You have no idea how much pleasure I can get watching people dig holes in the ground. It sounds odd I know but I have become completely hooked over the last fifteen years to Time Team and other archaeology shows. So this weekend each January is a godsend for me - when the show returns to the screens. It's been nine months since my last fix.
Today saw the team not far from where I live - up at Codnor Castle in Derbyshire.
Wonderful show and they found an absolute treasure - a Gold Noble, a medieval coin dating back to Henry V in the early fifteenth century.
Here's the link to the page on the Channel 4 website if you want to know more...
Me, I just can't wait until next Sunday for the next one.
And to add a little more to my happiness supply, there was an advert for the new series of ER in the middle of the show. Excellent.
