In 2006, University of Bristol archaeologists launched an innovative project: "excavating" a 1991 Ford transit van, used by archaeologists and others. This is an exercise in methodology: to see what can be learnt about a commonplace but complex object through modern archaeological analysis. It explore archaeology's potential contribution to understanding society's use of such objects and examines the very nature of contemporary archaeology. See in this video how, amid science and method, a rusting transit van can conjure up both enchantment and melancholy.

Produced by Greg Bailey, University of Bristol, in 2006
