Conflict landscapes and archaeology from above

Ypres, Belgium – 15-17 May 2014

The study of the archaeology of the First and Second World Wars has rapidly
expanded over the last decade, not the least because of the approaching
centennial of the First World War in 2014-18. These conflict landscapes and
their surviving archaeological remains are mainly studied from two
different approaches: either using contemporary historical aerial
photographs or with modern day prospection techniques (oblique aerial
photographs, Lidar, geophysical prospection techniques, etc…).

This conference will focus on these two approaches and aims to bring
together researchers from different disciplines (archaeologists, historians
and geographers) studying conflict landscapes over a wide geographic range
and time period, including, but not limited to the World Wars.

The conference, which is organised within the framework of ArcLand (
** take place over two days (15/16 May 2014), followed by a field trip in the
Ypres Salient (former battlefields of the First World War) on 17 May. The
conference venue is the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres (Belgium) (
