Welcome to Timetrails in Brittany

Image
Hello, I'm Philip.  Welcome to my tiny slice of the Internet and welcome to TimeTrails in Brittany. I've been running TimeTrails in Brittany tours since 2021 and, with each year that passes, the tours are becoming more and more popular with English-speaking visitors from all over the world. I have had a passion for the archaeology of the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age since my childhood and I have finally been able to set up home in the heart of one of Europe's richest archaeological landscapes.TimeTrials in Brittany tours are about sharing just a few of these landscapes with you and helping you to look at them through the eyes of an archaeologist. I currently offer five different tours but I'm always looking out for new and exciting tours to add. Please note that tours are not currently available on a Wednesday or Saturday. Tours on these days will resume in late May 2024. To find out more about my tours, simply select each one from the navigation menu. You'll find

"Just a tour guide"?

Image
  Why do I enjoy my tours so much? A little while ago somebody suggested I was "just a tour guide" and I actually found that quite depressing. Partly this was because the tone of the comment demeaned the work done by people all over the world who love sharing their local art, culture and history with others. More significantly, however, my sense of sadness came from the fact that the person who made the comment is someone I had never met and had never experienced one of my tours. He actually had no idea what I really do.   For me, my tours are about so much more than pointing at things and telling people about them. Each tour is a performance which depends completely on the relationships I build with my guests. Sometimes this includes building relationships between guests who may never have met. Doing this helps to build the sense of exploration, mystery and fun. This is where my teaching experience comes in.   Having begun my teaching career with the very smallest school chi

YouTube channel updated!

If you haven't yet visited my YouTube channel, why not stop by and take a look at my videos? My channel began with a few short videos showing footage of sites included on my tours but I've now started extending my videos into short documentaries on a range of archaeological topics pertinent to the tours I offer. Take a look and, if you like what you see, remember to "like and subscribe".    I'd also love to hear from you if you have any comments, questions or suggestions for future videos.

The very latest reviews for summer 2023

Here are the latest reviews of my Pink Granite Coast and Locminé Loop tours. I send my thanks to everybody who has taken the time to get back to me with their feedback. I hope to see you all again one day. Lizzi from the United Kingdom said;- “We loved the in-depth storytelling of the regional and European archaeology. Philip was generous to accommodate our family and 4month old. We explored a range of space and “off the beaten track” areas. Philip's discussion was brilliant and perfectly captured each one of us. Thank you.” Meanwhile Andrea from Bielefeld, Germany says;- "Philip is a very open and nice person who showed and explained an incredible amount of new things to us. We learned a lot and laughed a lot. Despite the pouring rain, he managed to give us an informative and unforgettable day. If we have the opportunity, we will definitely book one of his other tours. Thank you, Philip. Absolutely reco
