This is the blog of the Plugstreet archaeological project in Belgium. This is a Great War themed project exploring sites around Comines-Warneton and Messines. 2007 sees the first fieldwork in Belgium, and builds on investigations in the UK. The project is being led by members of No Man's Land - The European Group for Great War Archaeology and the Comines-Warneton Historical Society. The blog will include dig diaries written by various members of the team.
And we found all this rusty munition but thanks to Gontrand and Rod it wasn't a significant problem. There are German stick grenades and trench mortar rounds, as well as a British Stokes mortar bomb and someother bits and pieces. DOVO have now removedthem from the safe area on site.
The Project was selected as one of five finalists for the National Film Board of Canada Cross-Media Challenge 2009 competition at The Sheffield Documentary Festival. Angela delivered a presentation to the international judging panel and gathered audience, which was well received. Unfortunately we didn't scoop the main prize, but were very pleased to have reached the final and obtained some useful feedback and encouragement.
