Weather followed by Chronicle
Yankees at the Court of King Wiglaf
In August 1980, a party of 15 American volunteers arrived at Repton, Derbyshire, to join an archaeological excavation. It included businessmen, housewives, students and retired professors, most of whom knew nothing about archaeology. All had paid for the privilege of working hard in a muddy trench during a wet English summer.
Chronicle follows their three-week progress. Do the rain, the Repton mud and the school dormitories get them down?
Is the mound in the vicar's garden just a Victorian garden feature or a Viking burial?
