Lecture – “Beneath the Poppies and Crosses: What Archaeology Reveals about the First World War”

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

By Hank Lutton, Curator, Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex.

April 2017 marks the centenary of the United States’ entry into the First World War. To observe the anniversary, this program examines the recent contributions that archaeology has made to better understand “the war to end all wars.” By highlighting battlefield excavations, personal artifacts, and the forensic analysis of the fallen from unmarked graves, this lecture will reveal recent discoveries that are transforming our knowledge of how individual soldiers lived and died a century ago.
