Conflict Archaeology

This course provides an overview of the new discipline of Conflict Archaeology. By exploring new avenues in the multi-disciplined approach to Conflict Archaeology and looking out from the battlefield to see combat in context, this course is intended for all those interested in Battlefield Archaeology. It concentrates on conflict, battles and wars from Prehistoric times through to the archaeology of modern, total warfare, through lectures, seminars, field-based sessions, case studies and practicals. It features Cranfield Universitys special strengths in military capability, its unique historic armouries and small arms range. It is an intensive 3-day course, which will enable participants to discuss and debate the topic of conflict archaeology regarding its archaeological heritage. Battlefields are places where once great upheaval took place and the landscape in which they took place are far more peaceful spots today than the grim battles that effectively changed the course of history. Today the ancient and historical importance of conflict not only looks at the wider landscape in which these took place, but this course attempts to engage other related issues such as material culture, identity, memory, heritage and tourism.

Aim of the course
