The archaeology of "The Great Escape" from Stalag Luft III

The movie "The Great Escape" featuring Steve McQueen was one of my favorite movies as a kid. Not a very realistic movie I was told by my father at the time but I was very young and didn´t care too much about these kind of  issues back then :)

Here´s a nice documentary covering the archaeological fieldwork (2011) of  this dramatic site. Another example of how archaeology can add to and illustrate the real history of WW2!

Links to a few articles about the dig:
