WWI Archaeology News

I thought this piece of news released in the BBC website could be of interest for WWI aficionados:

Archaeologists are beginning the most detailed ever study of a Western Front battlefield, an untouched site where 28 British tunnellers lie entombed after dying during brutal underground warfare. For WWI historians, it's the "holy grail".


  1. Read about this earlier today and I must say it sounds excitiong (from a historical point of view). The fact that so much remains to be found, even after all this time, is quite amazing.

  2. The TFL Yahoo Gorup is now boiling with ideas to play tunneling scenarios with the Mud & Blood ruleset. Good to keep an eye on this development!!
