World War II Archaeology

You can find archaeological evidence for World War II both on land and sea.  Around the coast, and further inland, defences were built to stop the German invasion.  On the seafloor, you can find World War II ship, submarine and aircraft wrecks, which tell the story of the many battles fought both in the air and at sea.

This session will involve handling World War II artefacts found at sea and fun hands-on activities including dressing up as a real World War II pilot.
