Time Team start their dig at the Wemyss Caves on Saturday 5 June 2004.
I visited the cave site at about 6.00 pm, on Saturday 5th June to do a reckie of the site in preparation for a visit on the Sunday.
There were very few members of the public around. Things were being run down for the evening but even at this late hour there was still some activity. Therefore below are a few of the images taken on the Saturday Night.
I am no expert on digs, so the pictures really speak for themselves.
To understand what finds were made and their importance you will like the
rest of us have to wait until the programme is transmitted. The new series is expected to start in January 2005, and the programme on the Wemyss Caves is expected to be transmitted on Sunday, 20th February at 5.00 pm.

Sorting through the finds of the day
Digging is important but the sorting of finds and importantly the recording
of what has been revealed is a job to be done meticulously.
