In October 2007 Channel Four's Hit TV show "Time Team" came to Dungannon. They had been invited by the council to investigate the archaeology of Castle Hill, in the middle of Dungannon. The site was the ancient King of Ireland, Hugh O'Neill's Home, until he left, in what became known as The Flight of the Earl's. Time Team working with Queen's University Belfast and Environment & Heritage Service Northern Ireland, carried out an excavation to try and locate Hugh O'Neill's castle, and evidence of the townspeople who lived nearby.
