Record Sites and Memories of the First World War
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) is working with Historic England and other partners on this community project to bring together the local findings of volunteers from around the United Kingdom.
Contribute to a record that will be used by generations to come:
- to understand the legacy of the First World War on our landscape and consciousness
- to inform planning decisions and help safeguard First World War remains for future generations
For example in late 2013, the remains of a First World War practice battlefield was discovered on heathland in Gosport, Hampshire. The size of 17 football pitches, with two sets of opposing trench systems and a No Man's Land between, it was used for training troops before they were sent to the Front.
