English archaeology professor ‘Dolly’ Parton’s team handles high-profile (notably relic) finds. Often those prove relevant in the present, as such and/or as symbol for a cause. So the team runs personal danger, on top of their messy love – and other personal lives. Usually the story of the object is mainly told in an opening gambit and the episode’s final.
