Digging in the Dark
As a modern conflict archaeologist I am interested in the effects and legacies of warfare since 1914. My particular focus is on the subterranean landscapes of the Western Front and the progression of underground warfare through the twentieth century to the present day. My doctoral thesis combined archaeology and anthropology with military history, art, literature and cutting edge fieldwork in order to discover how human beings were able to withstand the enormous pressures of living and fighting beneath the Western Front during the Great War. Here you will find details of my written work in the form of essays, articles and books, along with images of the Western Front’s underworld, and much of the material culture it contains. I can be contacted through the contacts page.
