Conflict Archaeology is a rapidly developing sub-discipline within the traditional field of archaeology that has emerged in the last few years. It is characterised by an interdisciplinary archaeological and anthropological approach and, typically, investigates 20th-century conflict. Importantly, it involves an interpretation which considers the experience of living through conflict, and how this shapes the archaeological record in specific ways. In addition to the study of the archaeological record, Conflict Archaeology examines the legacy of war as understood and explored through heritage and material culture. It is much more than the excavation of old battlefields!
