Hever Castle 1

Fiona Bruce and the team set up for another busy day in the grounds of Hever Castle in Kent. Despite occasional downpours thick crowds unpack their heirlooms for the experts, including one of the finest pieces of furniture seen in recent years with an important table from the early 19th century, a painting of Mick Jagger by Cecil Beaton from the 1960’s, and a strong cuppa is required by the owner of a pair of
some of earliest tea caddies ever seen on the show. (574)

Working against a three-day deadline TIME TEAM AMERICA digs for the skeletons of long extinct bison that roamed Oklahoma 10,000 years ago. Could this be the largest bison kill site in North America from the Folsom period? What can we learn about bison behavior, hunting practices and what hunters understood about their quarry?

TIME TEAM AMERICA plunges the viewer into the grime and glory of real-life archaeology: epiphany and exhaustion, discovery and disappointment. Through the dirt, the sweat, the dust and the rain, archeologists explore the mysteries of the past through what they find buried below the ground. Part adventure, part hard science, part reality show, TIME TEAM AMERICA applies the latest technology and the team’s collective expertise to solving the riddles of the past — against a ticking clock. The team has just three days to find out what it can at each site.

An acre of land in a Maryland suburb holds vital clues to life on southern plantations during the height of slavery. Josiah Henson once lived here as the enslaved overseer of the Riley plantation. Henson wrote the autobiography that inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, a novel that galvanized the abolitionist movement. Can TIME TEAM AMERICA find evidence of Henson's life here?

“A World Not Ours” is a passionate, bittersweet account of one family’s multi-generational experience living as permanent refugees. Now a Danish resident, director Mahdi Fleifel grew up in the Ain el-Helweh refugee camp in southern Lebanon, established in 1948 as a temporary refuge for exiled Palestinians. Today, the camp houses 70,000 people and is the hometown of generations. The filmmaker’s childhood memories are surprisingly warm and humorous, a testament to the resilience of the community. Yet his yearly visits reveal the increasing desperation of family and friends who remain trapped in psychological as well as political limbo.
