We at the Plugstreet Project wish you all the compliments of the Season and pause to remind you that it is our study area that the famous Christmas Truce between British and German soldiers took place in No Man's Land.

Finding the Archaeology of such an event may be impossible but we hope the spirit of this event pervades your Christmas and New Year.

In the spirit of international cooperation that pervades the project we wish you a Happy Christmas in English, French, Flemish, German, Irish, Italian, Greek and Basque.

We also think of our friends who are far away, some of them in dangerous places and wish them Peace.

All Good Wishes

The Project Team
