    I watch Time Team on tv when ever i can, and by watching Phil Harding i think i have the mannerisms down to a tee, i can even Knapp a passable flint axe, and i have a battered tool box i can put a trowel and brush in, what else do i need?

    A set of soft paint brushes, and a small dental pick. String and rods to mark off a grid. Paper, pencils and a ruler, as well of a understanding how to make the grid on paper. A screened sifting box is a handy thing to have. GSP is good to have too

    You'll also need a Fedora and bullwhip.
