Best of Time Team Teatime

Tags: Time Team Teatime

To celebrate an amazing 32 weeks of Teatime, we decided to relive some of our favourite moments, from comparing tools with Ken Follett and entering the Labyrinth with Kate Mosse, to catching up with Philippa Gregory and exploring the Last Kingdom with Bernard Cornwell.

There's lots more to come too!


We also challenged you to have a go at our 'Just For Fun' Teatime quiz. So, how well do you know your Teatime sessions? Will you be crowned the ultimate Teatime superfan? Here are the answers... and remember, it's just for fun. We're all winners here!
