    It was in the Echo but they said it was between here and somewhere else where they'd choose to do the dig,I've heard nothing since.

    We asked Time Team to come down to the Williamson Tunnels and gave them the full blurb on them, saying that we'd love them to uncover something that hasn't been seen in 150 years. They gave a replay back and said 'they're not old enough'!!!!

    We were all wondering why the time team have never escavated the tunnels when we all went there,I can't believe they say they're not old enough the tunnels have such an interesting story to tell.

    there's remains of a neolithic settlement under the convent(or around) on Olive Mount.

    Suppose they have to wait for the land to be between developments to get access don't they? Mind, they could dig the garden up....

    TIME Team presenter Tony Robinson last night revealed his TV programme will come to Liverpool as part of the Capital of Culture celebrations.

    The popular archaeology show will record an episode in the city later in the year to unearth the story of how Liverpool began.

    Mr Robinson, who was in Merseyside to give a lecture at Liverpool University, said: “It will be Time Team’s gift to Liverpool for 2008. We are working very closely with the Liverpool Culture Company. We will look at how Liverpool was born.”

    The former Blackadder actor, who played hapless character Baldrick, said he could not reveal details about where the dig would take place, but hinted it would be along the waterfront.

    This year, one of the biggest archaeological digs in Liverpool’s history has begun to clear the way for construction of the city’s controversial new X-museum.

    Tony Robinson, cheeky person, " it is Time Teams gift ".
    Always amazes me the way they dig up bits of pottery and class it
    as roman, I would love them to dig someting up and it said on it," made in Japan". As for the Tunnels not being old enough, what about the progs
    they did on digging up the Spitfire, or the WW1 trenches.. To be honest
    a lot of the progs bore me stiff as they are all the same...

    Good stuff, but they should have come earlier before they dug up and filled in the old dock on Canning Place, the Manchester Dock and Kings Dock

    I don't know if it's still the case but at one stage they were thinking of scanning to find the moat of the castle. It was only filled in with rubble so should still be there.

    Hi steveb

    Roman pottery though is pretty distinctive, samian ware (the shiny red clay pottery that they made) or castor ware (pottery with a black surface). In addition, such pots are often found with coins which can date the find.
