Five-hundred years ago, a major city occupied what is now a large and empty field in the Scottish Borders. Founded by a king as a hub for international trade, Roxburgh was, along with Edinburgh, Stirling and Berwick, one of the four great centres of medieval Scotland. While the other three became thriving cities, Roxburgh simply vanished. Tony and the team have a unique chance to uncover whatever remains under the pasture.

As a landowner, I'd be tempted to allow further exploration, provided that the parts that didn't yield good results were fully restored over the following year. With such a wealth of history, even given that short amount of time and meters to excavate, the site was revealing some fascinating finds.

One of the things that strikes me is how unusual it is that what was once a major center of commerce was entirely abandoned. Trade towns, and towns in general, are built where they are for a good reason and those tend to continue to be good reasons for towns to be there, so they tend to be there for a long time and get rebuilt if some disaster destroys them. Had this area stayed Scottish for a couple more centuries, which wouldn't have been difficult, it would have continued on as a major trade center until the Act of Union made it no longer really an issue which side of the border it was on.

To me, its like the Ghost Towns in the western United States. Huge towns (for their time) sprung up for the gold rush but when the gold ran out, the towns died. They're scattered all over the west, but in some places, they're basically gone. It only took a little over 100 years for the ground to reclaim them. It doesn't surprise me that this is what would be left after what, 800-900 years?

@@armstronggermany2995 It changed hands several time during the various wars between the Scots and the English. The town and castle were destroyed in a battle in 1460 when James II of Scotland tried to take it back from the English (the last English-held castle in Scotland) while the English were busy having the civil war known as The Wars of the Roses. This demonstrates just how bad early artillery could be in terms of area damage: Everything the battle was about trying to get control of, and the King of Scotland as well, wound up in small bits.

Speaking as an American who's had just the one visit to the UK, I think those not native to the UK have no grasp what the importance of nettles might be. Visiting a small stone circle at a roadside, I innocently encountered nettles brushing gently against my bare legs. Within a half-hour, it was burning & painful, and discomfort continued for days. Standing nettles are a big deal. People should appreciate what is being asked of those who have to survey, fieldwalk, or dig in proximity to them.

It is amazing that a place like this could be abandoned just 500 years ago, and there is no historical documentation of the reason. I am not sure that the hypothesis put forward that it was related to loss of access to the port would be the full story, does not quite add up. I have a family link to Roxburghshire. I am wondering if it could have been destroyed at some stage being caught up in border clashes? Still, it is astonishing that there is no further historical record.
@tonylittle3508 2 yıl önce
According to one source, after being fought over many times, it was taken over by the English for about 100 years, and recaptured in 1460, by which time the town and church were just a pile of rubble.

From what I can see on a map the community of Kelso, Scotland is only about 2 miles, 3.2 km away. What is the correlation between Kelso, neighboring communities and that archaeological site. There must be something in the historical documents of that area. Perhaps as the local communities evolved the lesser of and least productive was slowly abandoned. We have many small little populated areas and Villages that were thriving + - 100 years ago in United States that are nothing but points on a map nowadays. Many of these started out as homesteads and nearby villages but as properties were sold and land Holdings became larger the current population dispersed for whatever reason. One of the ways that you can determine the locations of old homestead sites is ivy growing on an old tree and other anomalies that would not occur naturally in nature. There are many one-room schools scattered across America still today that supported thriving small communities that don't seem to exist today.

There isnt the funding for the long-term projects that would be required to investigate every timie site.

BEcause T.T are professionals, they follow professional procedures and keep careful records that can be used by later, costly projects.
@granthurlburt4062 Yıl önce
The Time Team archaeologists are actually working for free (at least Mick Aston was) on weekends. Obviously Tony and the BBC crews were paid. That is another reason they were limited to three days. Exploratory archaeology is very important. some professional archaeologists were quite sniffy about the three-day structure initially, but I imagine they are very happy now to be featured on Alice Robert's shows. If you watch those, notice how weary the archaeologists are. The banter among the T Time methods exists because they're full of excitement at exposing brand new things and speculating.

Having a deadline of 3 days hardly seems like you can even set your site up let alone make sense of what you find.
@Libbathegreat Yıl önce
That's the challenge and why this makes a good TV program. Most of the time on a dig, you don't have all the experts and specialists on site at once to discover and interpret things in real time. The fact they're all there arguing together probably yields better results.

​@@Libbathegreatit's definitely not 3 days, that's the "gimmick" production comes with to create a sense of urgency. Sometimes the ditches go ballistic in a few hours, which wouldn't be possible with careful digging

@@rafael_lana it *is* possible when you're taking off maybe a meter or more of topsoil with a mechanical digger in the first couple of hours. Most digs I've been on they don't do that so it took 3 days just to get through the topsoil, which in an agricultural area is kind of a waste really. I do know that on TT, sometimes they'd have some geophysics already done and they've pretty well decided on a plan before they get there, but the plan usually got thrown out halfway through day one 😄

@@Libbathegreat also sometimes they have 3D models of what they found like hours after it, back in the day that took much more time. Judging by the computers I would say late 90s, early 2000s.

@@rafael_lana Yeah show ran from 2003-2013 roughly. They had a whole graphics department working flat out though during the dig. You normally only see one but there were usually at least 4 or 5 (during the live digs probably more). And of course a lot of reconstructions (like the pots) are rendered in post.

So what's the city they just showed in the background? They made it seem like this town was gone completely...but there a big city immediately adjacent to the site they are looking for ...a town.
@joanneclarke771 2 yıl önce
Right, and that’s where most of the blocks from the houses in the original town went. They were used again in the new town.

@@joanneclarke771 Funny, they never seem to rebuild on the same site. Even bronze to Roman there were a few, but sometimes like only based on the value of the physical location, almost by accident.

I truly do not understand why they don’t have geophysics go a day or two before the rest do you have the whole site for most of it done on day one instead of afternoon day three when they don’t even have time to check any of it

31:18 The location of the church is shown lying OUTSIDE the main defensive wall. Doesn't makes sense to me...
@suburbanbanshee 2 yıl önce
Some churches would be built outside the walls, because it was easier to bury bodies and because there were often inns, etc., catering to travelers who didn't make it inside the gates at night, or wanted to stay cheaper.
@suburbanbanshee 2 yıl önce
Also, if a monastery or bishop had lands outside the wall, you'd build a church on the lands you owned.
@amygodward4472 Yıl önce
Quite often, in larger towns, there would be two churches - one for the higher ground within the walls and one basic church just outside. Whether this resulted in a class division for the attendants of the churches - merchants and nobles who would live within the walls going to their local church and tanners and farmers going to the exterior church...I don't know
