Abstract: This article examines the experiential values of archaeological television, through the case study of Time Team. It proposes a framework of analysis and provides new evidence to demonstrate how this TV series has contrib- uted to the construction of the current public understanding of archaeology. By exploring the composition of the more dedicated audience of Time Team and their viewing experiences, it is argued that television can facilitate inclusive kinds of engagement with the past, and offer meaningful opportu- nities for learning. Based on the research outcomes, the conclusions will consider possible scenarios for the future of the audiovisual communication of archaeology in the UK.
