Time Team goes in search of a lost Anglo-Saxon monastery on the rain and wind-swept Headland at Hartlepool. They have just 3 days to find the exact location of a monastery that 1,200 years ago had a thriving community of monks and nuns, presided over by Saint Hilda. She was a Christian saint and the founding abbess of the monastery at Whitby, which was chosen as the venue for the Synod of Whitby in 664. An important figure in the Christianisation of Anglo-Saxon England, she was abbess at several monasteries and recognized for the wisdom that drew kings to her for advice.

And Australia has very litte archeology. The Aboriginal people have been here for 60,000 years. Because they lived a semi-nomadic life, living off the land, they have left very little evidence BUT fantastic cave paintings. Europeans arrived in 1788, so that's as far back as we can go. We have a TV show called "Resoration Australia" which tracks people saving and renovating some of the country's original homes. I love it.

Actually we have a lot of archaeology. Indigenous Peoples were not nomadic wandering hunters and gatherers across the whole Australian landscape. In both WA and Tas there was written records recorded by early sailors of small huts on the beachfront. There is other evidence of wattle and daub huts pre-colonization. Not to mention fish traps, middens, scar trees, shell dolls grinding stones and every now and then people find Indigenous graves.

Something I like about this program is that you never know if they’re actually going to find anything. Some episodes turn up big revelations where they kind of hit the jackpot… and others go on for three days and at the end there’s a pot shard and a lot of trenches. It’s realistic. Most of science is failure with discoveries coming bit by bit..

England is a small country with a very long history on the surface of its territory and under it. Confinement in a small geographic space surrounded by the ocean seems to have made the English obsessed with the diverse pasts of their rainy island. In Brazil, the opposite occurs. We live in a huge country and we rarely care about history. Nobody here investigates the few archaeological sites much. Historical research is done, but it is always confined to Universities. TV shows like this are simply NOT made in my country.

I bet it has more to do with economics and overall education. At least thats what Brazil has in common with other countries that have similar issues compared to europe, Asia, and the US for instance. On a side note Brazil specifiaclly has a massive corruption issue that, when resoloved, will fast track the economy and educational initiatives.

​@jboss119 It may have more to do with a history of colonialism. In order to colonize a land with people already in it, you have to convince yourself that they are really less than human. Those attitudes linger in a subtle way: Who wants to dig up evidence of a people that are less human? I live in Canada and know several people that have Archeology backgrounds. None of them are working in the field: the interest and resources just aren't there.

@@Faeyakim no sorry its more as i said. Other colonized areas have a richly studied history like northern Africa. Canada is a poor example as there isnt very many ancient structures for instance to study.

@@Faeyakim In colonial Brazil, the overwhelming majority of the population did not speak Portuguese, but the Tupi language (whose grammar and vocabulary were described by the Jesuits in the mid-16th century). The Portuguese language was only spoken by a small aristocratic elite and settlers from Portugal. The Marques de Pombal banned the use of Tupi in 1758 and that was what really caused the almost complete disappearance of the indigenous cultures preserved by the mestizo population into which the Indians were being integrated. The books and documents produced in Tupi were almost all destroyed. Nothing similar has occurred in the US. There the Indians were exterminated in the 19th century. The civilizing stage of the Brazilian Indians when the Portuguese arrived in Brazil in 1500 was more or less similar to what existed in Britain when it was invaded by the Romans. 15 centuries of difference between the formation process of England and Brazil makes a difference, I suppose.

So a double monastery is a co-ed monastery?
@christinebutler7630 5 aylar önce
Not really co-ed; it's more like a male monastery and a female monastery, built close together, sharing one administration (Abbot or abbess, prior or prioress) and some tasks and resources.
