Sir William Watson Cheyne

The Time Team in Fetlar
The Time Team, from the popular UK television programme, were on Fetlar from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th of August, 2002.

Because of the interest this has created, we have set up a few extra pages providing a record of their activity on the island. The sites they have excavated are at Gord, Houbie, where parts of a Viking house have been uncovered, and also a Viking boat burial at Aith. The pages showing the Time Team in Fetlar can be accessed from here.

As always, some of our collections are accessible online through this website. Use the Digitisation Project link from the left-hand navigation buttons.
