- 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..."

It turned out to be the marker place for a Victorian era flagpole. So much for the treasure of Cornish pirates.
