Introduction to Great War Archaeology: Cambridge. 17-19 April 2015.

A message received by the Essex Society for Archaeology and History:

I am writing from the Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education regarding an upcoming weekend residential course that may be of interest to you and your members. If you were able to pass on the below information to your networks and include us in your social media output (@Cambridge_ICE) I would really appreciate it.

New weekend course: Introduction to Great War archaeology 17 – 19 April 2015
The Great War (1914–18) encompassed whole nations and utterly changed both lives and landscapes. This course will present an introduction to the archaeology of this period. Through a mixture of formal presentations, discussion and artefact handling, you will be introduced to field archaeology, monuments and artefacts both in Britain and abroad. The course is taught by Martin Brown, professional archaeologist with over 25 years experience at Institutions like the Ministry of Defence, English heritage and local government. Martin has also featured on Time Team! He is a leading conflict archaeologist, with particular expertise in the Great War so is the ideal man to help you explore the landscapes of war but also to see the men and women within it.  

This weekend course is held at the Cambridge University Institute of Continuing Education’s home, Madingley Hall, and lasts a whole weekend. It costs £250 which includes lunch & dinner during the weekend, refreshments and tuition. Accommodation is also available at the Institute’s home, Madingley Hall, over the weekend at an additional cost starting from £50 per night and subject to availability. If you would like to sign up or want to find out more information, please visit

I hope this is of interest to you and your group. If you can, it would be great if you could forward this message on to your network and talk about the course on your website and social media.

Kind regards
