But archaeologist Mick Aston has walked out of Time Team after 19 years - after producers hired a former model as the programme's co-presenter. Usually clad in a loud jumper, with his white hair blowing in the wind, Professor Aston was the show's site director who chose where to dig for the next historical discovery.

She seems very well qualified for the position. As the article states Miss Ochota holds a master’s degree in archaeology and anthropology from Cambridge University. She was the anthropologist on the BBC’s Castaway Exposed and has presented a number of other programmes using her expertise. It disappoints me that they focus on her few modeling jobs as opposed to her extensive knowledge of archaeology.
