First World War Fieldworks in England

Author(s): Martin Brown

This thematic study on First World War fieldworks in England has been prepared by Martin Brown, Principal Archaeologist, WYG, on behalf of the Historic England, to facilitate better understanding of the archaeological resource. It is designed to provide a national context for this class of field monuments. The study forms part of Historic England’s contribution to the national Centenary Partnership Programme that seeks to commemorate the centenary of the Great War. It will promote protection through discovery and the identification of the most significant remains. In addition, the report may inform formal designation at the national level, local listing and the protection of previously unrecognised remains through planning and management agreements.
