Time Team

Time Team is a British television programme that aired on Channel 4 from 16 January 1994 to 7 September 2014. Created by television producer Tim Taylor and presented by actor Tony Robinson, each episode featured a team of specialists carrying out an archaeological dig over a period of three days, with Robinson explaining the process in lay terms; the specialists changed throughout the programme's run, although it included professional archaeologists such as Mick Aston, Carenza Lewis, Francis Pryor and Phil Harding. The sites excavated ranged in date from the Palaeolithic to the Second World War. In October 2012, Channel 4 announced that the final series would be broadcast in 2013. Series 20 was screened from January–March 2013 and nine specials were screened between May 2013 and September 2014. At the start of the programme, Tony Robinson explains, in an opening "piece to camera", the reasons for the team's visit to the site and during the dig, he enthusiastically encourages the archaeologists to explain their decisions and conclusions.

He tries to ensure. The site is suggested by a member of the viewing public. Time Team uncover as much as they can of the history of the site in three days. Excavations are not just carried out to entertain viewers. Robinson claims that the archaeologists involved with Time Team have published more scientific papers on excavations carried out in the programme than all British university archaeology departments over the same period and that by 2013, the programme had become the biggest funder of field archaeology in the country. A team of archaeologists led by Mick Aston or Francis Pryor, including field archaeologist Phil Harding, congregate at a site in Britain; the original Time Team line-up from 1994 has altered over the years. Historian Robin Bush was a regular in the first nine series, having been involved with the programme through his long friendship with Aston. Architectural historian Beric Morley featured in ten episodes between 1995 and 2002. In 2005, Carenza Lewis left to pursue other interests.

She was replaced by Anglo-Saxon specialist. The regular team included: Stewart Ainsworth, landscape investigator. Guy de la Bédoyère has been present for Roman digs, as well as those involving the Second World War such as D-Day and aircraft. Architectural historian Jonathan Foyle has appeared in episodes relating to excavations of country estates. Paul Blinkhorn, Mark Corney and Jackie McKinley have appeared from time to time. Mick ‘the dig’ Worthington, an excavator in the early series returned as a dendrochronologist, whereupon he was dubbed'Mick the twig'. Margaret Cox assisted with forensic archaeology between 1998 and 2005. Other specialists who appeared from time to time include historian Bettany Hughes, archaeologist Gustav Milne, East of England specialist Ben Robinson and David S. Neal, expert on Roman mosaics. Local historians joined in when appropriate. In February 2012, it was announced; the disputed changes included hiring anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota as a co-presenter, dispensing with other archaeologists and what he thought were plans to "cut down the informative stuff about the archaeology".

"The time had come to leave. I never made any money out of it. I feel really angry about it," he told British Archaeology magazine. Time Team producer Tim Taylor released a statement in response to the news reports saying "His concerns are of great importance to me. We have addressed some of them" and that "you’ve not heard the last of Mick on Time Team". More recent regular team members included archaeologist Neil Holbrook, Roman coins specialist Philippa Walton, historian Sam Newton. Younger members of Time Team who made regular appearances include: Jenni Butterworth, Raksha Dave, Kerry Ely, Brigid Gallagher, Rob Hedge, Katie Hirst, Alex Langlands, Cassie Newland, Ian Powlesland, Alice Roberts, Faye Simpson, Barney Sloane, Tracey Smith and Matt Williams. Time Team developed from an earlier Channel 4 programme, Time Signs, first broadcast in 1991. Produced by Taylor, Time Signs had featured Harding, who went on to appear on Time Team. Following that show's cancellation, Taylor went on to develop a more attractive format, producing the idea for Time Team, which Channel 4 picked up, broadcasting the first series in 1994.

Time Team has had many companion shows during its run, including Time Team Extra, History Hunters and Time Team Digs, whilst several spin-off books have been published. The programme features special episodes documentaries on history or archaeology and live episodes. Time Team America, a US version of the programme, was broadcast on PBS in 2009 and co-produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting and Videotext/C4i; the programme has been exported to 35 other countries. Time Team was commissioned by Channel 4 Television and made in partnership between VideoText Communications Ltd and Picturehouse Television Co. Ltd. Formed Wildfire Television was involved in the production of The Big Roman Dig and The Big Royal Dig, it was produced by the show's originator, with Robinson as associate producer. On 13 September 2007, during the filming of a jousting reenactment for a special episode of Time Team, a spli

Yaz culture

The Yaz culture was an early Iron Age culture of Margiana and Sogdia. It emerges at the top of late Bronze Age sites, sometimes as stone towers and sizeable houses associated with irrigation systems. Ceramics were hand-made, but there was increasing use of wheel-thrown ware. There have been found bronze or iron arrowheads iron sickles or carpet knives among other artifacts. With the farming citadels, steppe-derived metallurgy and ceramics, absence of burials it has been regarded as a archaeological reflection of early East Iranian culture as described in the Avesta. So far, no burials related to the culture have been found, this is taken as possible evidence of the Zoroastrian practice of exposure or sky burial. In the region of Central Asia, the Bronze Age Oxus civilization was characteristic for irrigation and proto-state society based on long distance trade of raw materials and goods. However, it disappeared in the Late Bronze Age, in its place emerged the Early Iron Age Yaz I culture with rural settlements based around fortified structures, control of irrigation systems, with specific hand-made ceramic type, as well as the complete disappearance of graves, compared to thousands of kurgans in the north.

The ceramics, spherical stone maces, show continuity and contemporaneity between Yaz Depe and Ulug Depe of the Early Iron Age and Tekkem Depe among others of the Namazga-Tepe VI period. Yaz I culture is argued to be related to the sedentarisation of the nomadic Indo-Iranians in the Eurasian Steppe, a synthesis with autochthonous traits, it extended from the central part of the Kopet Dag mountains to the fertile delta of the Murghab River. It is characterised for total lack of necropolises and tombs, as well as painted ceramic with triangle and ladder patterns. Recent research shows four groups of patterns, the triangular, bands, of additional elements, it seems to be connected to the Chust culture of Fergana Valley, Mundigak V-VI in Sistan, Pirak I-III on the Kacchi Plain. Compared to the Chust culture, no tombs from the Yaz culture have been found. Asko Parpola and Fred Hiebert argued that these cultures derived from the Haladun culture of Xinjiang, some Andronovo culture contacts, indicating a Europid upper strata who spoke East Aryan.

The introduction of the culture is related to the sound change *s > h when Iranian language came in the Indo-Iranian borderlands of Rgvedic tribes around 1500 BCE, seen in the change of the Vedic river Sindhu into Avestan Hindu, Sarasvati into Haraxhvaiti. It is dated circa 1100–700 or 1000–550 BCE in Middle Iron Age, however some recent research consider no accurate boundary between the Yaz I and Yaz II, it moved to the northeast. It is characterized by wheel-made pottery type, iron metallurgy, large fortified sites, as well as the occupation of previous sites and the continuation of the funerary practices; the Yaz II complex correlates with the Airyanem Vaejah, homeland of those tribes who spoke Avestan language, different from both Western and Eastern Iranian languages, to be replaced in Bactria by the former at the end of the 1st millennium BCE. Asko Parpola associated the change from Yaz I to Yaz II around 1000 BCE with the migration of the Western Iranians, he considered that the Yaz I people spoke Proto-Eastern Proto-Saka.

The ruins of the ancient city of Nad-i Ali, identified with the capital of the Kayanian dynasty kingdom which coincides with the Yaz II/A, while date of the late Kayanian capital Balkh to Yaz II/B period. At the end of Yaz II/B the Murghab oasis became deserted, it is explained by the bloody revolt of Frada mentioned in Behistun Inscription in which 55,243 Margians were killed and 6,972 taken as prisoners, the conquest of Bactria. It is dated circa 700–400 BCE or second half of the 6th and end of the 4th century BCE in the Late Iron Age, part of the Achaemenid Empire period, but is still characterized by the same cultural and funerary continuity; the beak-shaped rim is replaced in form of a flattened roller, vessels are cylindrical-conical, were discovered bronze three-bladed arrow, iron axes and adzes. The Yaz Tepe large settlement was the central district in the metropolitan part of Margiana, it covered 16 ha, stood on brick platform mound 8 m high, while the stratigraphic excavations in the area revealed Yaz I complex, Yaz II and Yaz III house remains.

The Yaz I complex was similar to those in northern Bactria, thus the culture was noted for the development of large settlements centred around fortified keeps built on massive platforms, but the excavations failed to locate the transition from the Late Bronze Age unlike other cultures. Other Margian well known sites with Yaz I ceramics are Gonur Tepe, Uch Tepe, Adam Basan, Garaoj Tepe, Takhirbaj Tepe. Kuchuk Tepe settlement in Bactria is related to the Yaz I culture, it looked like a flattened circular hill with an area of height 8 m. The structures were built on a clay platform surrounded by a defensive wall. At the end of the first period the building had twenty-five chambers.

Black Brick

"Black Brick" is a single by the American metal band Deafheaven. The song was released for download on February 27, 2019 through Anti- records. "Black Brick" is an unreleased track from the band's Ordinary Corrupt Human Love sessions, released as a stand-alone single. The track was a surprise release that didn't receive any marketing or promotion prior to release and coincided with the start of Deafheaven's March–April 2019 US tour with Baroness. Music critics praised the track for being one of Deafheaven's heaviest songs to date with many critics noting that it differed from the other songs from the Ordinary Corrupt Human Love sessions. Other critics noted elements of thrash metal and compared it to the darker and heavier material on their 2015 album New Bermuda. In his write-up for "Black Brick"'s release, Andrew Sacher of BrooklynVegan wrote: "It's darker and more evil than Deafheaven ever sound, with mile-a-minute thrash riffs, metalcore chugs, other devil horn-worthy sounds worked in to their usual post-black metal approach.

It's the first song they released since being nominated for a Grammy, if you thought Grammy exposure would make them want to go in an softer direction, you thought wrong."Revolver said of the song: "Not only has the single dropped out of the blue, but it's Deafheaven's heaviest offering yet, a necro blast of sepulchral grimness. The seven-and-a-half-minute cut is a B-side from Ordinary Corrupt Human Love, one can only wonder how different the album would have felt as a whole with its inclusion." In their review of Deafheaven's performance on their tour with Baroness, the Los Angeles Times' August Brown wrote: "The new, writhing single'Black Brick' pulls more from classic thrash, its sudden peals of violence put everything else around it in sharper focus. Texture and drama are baked into these songs, sequencing them well matters a lot to this band." Black Brick on Bandcamp
