Gallipoli study

From Anzac Day, 2:11 pm on 11 April 2011

Archaeologists have made some surprising discoveries in the first-ever joint Australian, Turkish and New Zealand survey of the Anzac battlefield. The findings include 12 cemeteries, concrete boundary markers and evidence of tunnels created during the Gallipoli campaign. Not only do the findings tell us about tactics used during the campaign, they also give us a glimpse of what like was like for our troops on that infamous battlefield.
