Renata Peters (UCL Institute of Archaeology) will give one of the UCL Lunch Hour Lectures On Tour this year, taking place at The Guardian on 19th June (between 13.00 and 14.00). She will talk about investigative conservation done on objects excavated from Western Front trenches. Some of these objects were associated with unidentified human remains thought to be of soldiers killed in battles between 1914 and 1918, and provided important information for their identification. Others provided more questions than answers, but also shed light on the reality of life and death in the trenches.
