This talk was given at DigNation ’18, a crowdfunded festival organised by DigVentures and Sir Tony Robinson in honour of beloved Time Team archaeologist Mick Aston.

Mick Aston always dreamed of running a big archaeological project on ancient rural settlements. Eventually, his dream came true. In this talk, Chris Gerrard shares some of the remarkable discoveries (and memories) from Shapwick.

Plus, Troy is not in Norwich, where to hide cheese, and why you should visit Santorini.
