Archaeology is not just the ancient past, it is also the recent past, and this includes past conflicts. Battlefield Archaeology is a popular sub-discipline of archaeology and one that I undertake every November by visiting and researching at The Somme, in France.
Behind this blog is my personal passion to see everyone Remember our Fallen – and that includes my brother, Captain Nick Carter, RAMC.
There are over 1.7 million Commonwealth War Graves around the world, and each year many hundreds of thousands of them have no sign of Remembrance on Remembrance Day, November 11th.
Our aim is to place an Humanitarian Poppy on every single CWGC grave, in order to honour the men and women who gave their lives so we can live in freedom today.
It is unbelievably heart wrenching to see graves empty of Remembrance each year.
