watermills Time Team investigate mill site at Dotton, Devon

Devon 24 reports that
CHANNEL 4's Time Team was at Dotton, near Colaton Raleigh, this week to excavate the remains of an ancient mill.

It was the first time in the programme's 150-show history that the team have excavated a mill site.

Excavations began at the Dotton Farm site, owned by Clinton Devon Estates, on Sunday, with the 60-strong team led by presenters Tony Robinson (aka Baldrick in Black Adder), Mick Aston and Stewart Ainsworth.

It is believed the mill's remains could date from as early as 1600 and there is mention of a mill on the site in the Domesday Book.
A picture feature is planned in the same publication.

There is no mention of this on the Time Team website, so I assume it's for a forthcoming series.
