We’ve been reliving some of our favourite Time Team episodes since first airing way back in 1994. In this feature, 'Where are we?', we're sharing snippets taken from Tony’s opening ‘pieces to camera’. But can you tell from these teasers alone exactly where we are?

Today, the location is perhaps best known as the site of the Latitude Music Festival.
