WW1 archeology exhibition in Ypres


Ypres’ In Flanders Fields museum is focusing its attention on the subterranean relics of war this year.

Entitled Traces of War, WW1 Archeology the museum’s fascinating new exhibition explores the strata of buried First World War remains that lie less than half a metre beneath the surface of the farmland of modern-day Belgium and France.

History unearthed

Highlights include numerous artefacts that have been recovered over the past 10 years and the light they shed on everyday life in the trenches.

The displays also tell the story of some of the soldiers whose remains have finally been recovered and identified in recent years.

The exhibition runs from 17 February until 26 August. To find out more both about it and the In Flanders Fields museum, click here.
