Modern archaeological investigation relies on a range of interdisciplinary techniques to be effective. The Cold War is one such example where site recording, personal accounts and surviving documentation all play a part in providing the narrative of this secret period.
These sessions are fully illustrated and contemporary material will be available for inspection during the sessions.
Dr Bob Clarke is a recognised expert in the field of Cold War archaeology and has published widely on the subject.
