"Deutschen Lager Hanko" project starting tomorrow

Feeling exited. After acquiring all the necessary permits and meeting up with all the involved authorities the archaeological excavation of the WW2 German transition camp is finally a reality. The first trial excavations and surveys of this large and complex site will take place 10.4.-14.4.2014. The archaeological work  will be part of a larger study of the position of the city and larger Hanko area in WW2 and is to start in full in the summer of 2015. 

I stumbled upon this great lecture by Tony Pollard over Youtube and would like to share it here. It discusses some key issues regarding conflict- and battlefield archaeology and making documentaries about the subject:
