Storyboard Text

  • Hello there
  • Meet Edith Pretty, or more formally known as Ms. Pretty. As the owner of the Sutton Hoo house, it is her mounds that are under excavation. Ms. Pretty is a reserved, humble, and content character that plays a key role in the book.  She is an older, grey-haired, averaged sized woman. 
  • Next I present Basil Brown, Suffolk soil expert and archaeologist. Basil begins the excavation at Sutton Hoo, but then is relieved of his duty by the British Museum (but continues to help). Basil is a trusting, reliant, and some may say he is unorthodox. But at heart, he is a good person. Basil is an older, scruffy, and dirty looking man with whiskers.  
  • Good day
  • Finally I introduce Peggy Piggott, brought in through the British Museum with her husband. On their honeymoon, Peggy and her husband (Stuart) are beckoned to the site. Peggy is a very valuable member of the team being light and nimble on the site. She is quiet, yet kind, thoughtful, and empathetic. She is petite, strong, and tan woman of middle-age.  
  • How do you do?
  • Peggy is concerned about her appearance towards her new husband. Her husband, Stuart, on the other hand, isn't concerned at all about her appearance. 
  • Do I look okay?
  • You look nice today, darling. 
  • Internal Conflict
  • The setting of the book "The Dig" is the Sutton Hoo house (as shown), the excavation site. Almost the entire book takes place here, and the mounds in the back provide the treasure of the past. 
  • Setting
  • There is a sort of "under the radar" conflict between the two museum keepers, Mr. Phillips and Reid Moir. Mr. Phillips is the director of the British Museum and he in a way took over the excavation from the Ipswich Museum. Reid Moir is the director of the Ipswich Museum, and feels he was stepped over, being the initial museum for the excavation.
