Battlefield Archaeology

Wednesday 6 May - Panel Discussion in partnership with the University of Melbourne
The Anzac battlefield: landscape of war and memory, a major archaeological survey of the Gallipoli battlefields on display at the Shrine from 14 April 2015 - 31 August 2015, reveals the brutal realities of daily life in the trenches for both the allied and Turkish sides. This discussion explores what the survey reveals about the nature of the First World War, the way in which different combatants understood their role and the meaning of the Dardanelles Campaign.
This event is part of the University of Melbourne ANZAC Centenary Lectures, presented in partnership with the Shrine of Remembrance.
