A series of quarterly programmes reviewing archaeological developments and discoveries in the British Isles
Edited and introduced by Glyn Daniel
Fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge. and Lecturer in Archaeology in the University
Stanwick and the North of Britain at the Roman Conquest
In this edition Dr. Daniel introduces:
Sir Mortimer Wheeler , C.I.E., M.C., D. Litt. , F.B.A.
Professor of Archaeology in the University of London, and Secretary of the British Academy
Produced by Alan Gibson
Sir Mortimer Wheeler excavated the great earthworks at Stanwick, in the North Riding of Yorkshire in the summers of 1951 and 1952, and was able to show that the Elizabethan antiquary Leland made a good guess when he described it as * campe of men of warre.'
In giving an account of his work, he relates the archaeological results of recent excavation to what is known of north Britain in the first century A.D., and to the Brigantes whom Roman historians described as being subdued only after ' many battles, sometimes bloody battles.*

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
