A short documentary that profiles an exceptional teacher, Richard Edwardson of Surrey, British Columbia. Each year "Mr. Ed" takes his grade 7 Harold Bishop School class on a three-day archeological dig. Artifacts and sites are prepared beforehand by Mr. Ed and ex-students who return year after year to participate. Along with the preparatory and post-dig classes and workshops, this teaching program is extremely successful from a number of points of view.
