Subject: The Detectorists back (BBC)

I thought I'd post to draw attention to the fact that the splendid sit-com The Detectorists is back tonight at 10pm on BBC4 for a second series. And of course if you miss it, it will be available on BBC iPlayer.

First series was just about perfect, including a pretty spot-on folk open mic session - and there,s a really great theme song here on youtube

I don't know what the TV show is like, but I recently had a library book on medieval Britain, and it highlighted the help that detectorists are providing to archeology today.

And filmed in beautiful Suffolk. Aren't you sorry you left us, Alan? Your 'Sorrel Horse' evenings were splendid.

It's filmed in suffolk, but the story appears actually to be set in Essex, in and around Danbury near Chelmsford, respelt as Dainbury. The historical references all apply to that part of the world. Perhps it wouldn'r have been as good for filming as Framlingham.

One thing I love are the exchanges about TV quizzes. Mainly it's the way it trests metal detecting, and by implication all slightly daft stuff like that, as funny but without sneering at them. i imagine there might be some Morris dancing before we're through.

I'm 95% sure that this is the archeology book I read with the information about help from detectorists.

http://www.amazon.com/Britain-Middle-Ages-Archaeological-History/dp/0007203624/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1446302777&sr=1-6&keywords=francis+pryor

Your library might have it.
