* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]]".

* BerserkButton: Do ''not'' step into Phil's trench without asking him first. As Tony found out early in season one. This is fairly standard archeological practice, because you never know if you are about to stamp on less than obvious archeology or just dirt. Phil just forgot Tony had zero archeological experience at that point and gave him a full on DrillSergeantNasty earful.

* DigAttack: The episode "Bridgenorth Castle" descibes how, in real-life, merely the threat of a Dig Attack could be a winning move. The attackers dug a tunnel underneath the castle, which the besieged defenders could hear being dug, and because there was no way to counter-attack they had to surrender or face being exploded by gunpowder placed there. They surrendered.
