The Archaeology of Dunkirk

Just returned from filming in Dunkirk with a group of local amateur archaeologists who have been digging up the beaches there for more than 20 years. During the period we were working with them, they found some amazing material, just in a morning, including a gas mask (above) in incredible condition. This will feature in a series for BBC1 entitled Dig1940, and presented by Jules Hudson. Current broadcast date is sometime around June 2010.
