Part extreme adventure, part hard science, and part reality show, Time Team America takes viewers deep into the trenches of America’s most intriguing archaeological sites. In each episode, the show's top scientists are given three days to uncover the buried secrets of their assigned dig. Every hour counts as the scientists piece together the past using up-to-date technology, decades of combined experience and their own sharp wits. Far from the comfort of a science lab, Time Team America faces searing heat, driving rain, alligator-infested swamps, frayed nerves and the inevitable technical setbacks. Through it all, the audience peers over the shoulders of diggers at work, eavesdrops on intense conversations between experts and shares the rush of discovery as artifacts emerge from the ground.
