Mick Aston was equally known for his colourful jumpers that he began wearing after a producer asked him to brighten up his outfits to which he responded by wearing the most garish and hideous piece of knitwear he could find.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first series, each episode begins with a member of the public reading a letter that they've written to the Time Team, asking them to come and dig up something in their local area. During the titles, Tony Robinson then introduces which members of the team will be involved in that particular dig. "This week's Time Team are..."
Time Team became a household name in the UK for their excavations but the very first episode contained no digging whatsoever, just an archaeological survey of the area they'd been invited to investigate.

* MyLocal: When the team did a dig in a village with no pub they ended Day Two in a hastily assembled out door bar which they called "The Phil's Head", with a photograph of Phil superimposed on a standard snorting bull's head pub sign.

In each episode, the team's archaeologists have three days to investigate a site not otherwise open for excavation, such as a golf course. The sites have generally never been explored with modern techniques, and often not at all, making this programme one of the few examples of genuine scientific research being televised. At some of the sites, TimeTeam have made discoveries of national historical significance.

* WeaponOfChoice: Phil uses a personal shovel that he's modified (namely an extra-long handle and extra reinforcement) to suit his needs. He also keeps it specially sharp in order to pierce into hard soil.

* FloweryInsults: One of the episodes re-staged a Saxon debate with authentic flowery insults from the period. Although we're aren't certain about ending with "Up thine" though.

* NeverLiveItDown: [[invoked]] This is discussed in one episode regarding grave goods, in that what is buried with you is not necessarily an accurate reflection of what you were like, but what people most associated you with. Tony mentions that with him it would probably be a "[[{{Blackadder}} bloody turnip]]".
