The Archaeology of World War II

This month’s Archaeology Magazine features an interesting article on the archaeology of World War II. The modern warfare technology, techniques, and lack of defined lines has forced archaeologists to develop new and innovative techniques for warfare archaeology.

The study of World War II is at a critical juncture. We are now at a time when both veterans and civilians who participated in and lived through the war—on the battlefield and on the home front—are passing away in greater numbers.

You can read the entire article in the magazine, but you can read the abbreviated version (as well as some amazing photos and interviews) on their website here.
