Alex Sotheran is an archaeological adviser for the Defence Infrastructure Organisation and has been a professional archaeologist for almost twenty years. During that time he has also worked in battlefield archaeology since 2003 and this talk is a general introduction to the work he has been involved with on battlefield sites in France and Belgium. The talk explores three different sites, Thiepval, Bullecourt and Serre, the excavations that occurred there and the findings of that work. Also, there is a look at some of the typical war materiel that you would expect to find on a First World War archaeological excavation. This talk demonstrates what can be discovered about the First World War through the archaeological exploration of battle sites.
