Gallipoli excavation.

The 1915 battlefield at Gallipoli is to be the centre of detailed research to be carried out by a team from the University of Melbourne this year. Professor Antonio Sagona and Chris Mackie are part of a multidisciplinary and international project that aims to provide a holistic picture of the battlefield area, recording visible remnants of the battlefield as well as using ground-penetrating radar and magnetometry to assess subsurface features such as graves and underground trenches. The project also hopes to identify any ancient sites in the battlefield area, which lies across the Dardanelles from the legendary site of Troy. (September 21st)
