Excavations of First World War Practice Trenches, Penally – 2019

Penally First World War Trenches

Geophysical surveys were carried out in all three locations, which helped to inform the location of evaluation excavations in two of the three areas.

The excavation was carried out with lots of help from volunteers, and Manorbier school also came to spend the day on the excavations to learn about archaeological techniques and life in the trenches in the First World War.
