This film is a video mirror between the Past and the Future displayed on the tactile surface of Neolithic sarsen stone. In this projected dimension, three key archaeology/media figures discuss archaeology's portrayal on UK television: Mike Pitts, Editor of British Archaeology magazine; Francis Pryor, President of the Council for British Archaeology; and Julian Richards, TV and radio broadcaster. Archaeology has become very popular on UK television, prompting questions about the proper relationship between the profession and the medium.
