The problem of human remains in the Anzac Battlefield


Recommended Posts

The problem of human remains in the Anzac Battlefield (1:29:25) lecture by Dr Peter Dowling Heritage Officer, ACT National Trust, Canberra

During several visits to the Anzac Battlefield at Gallipoli, Turkey, since 2003, Dr Peter Dowling has located human remains exposed in areas of high tourist activity laying on road banks and verges which follow the lines of Allied and Turkish frontline trenches.

These remains are in constant danger of being further disturbed or destroyed by the actions of roadworks, coaches and tourist activites. Despite National Trust representations to government authorities to initiate a conservation strategy to protect and conserve these remains little has been done. Dr Dowling discussed these issues and proposed a conservation strategy.

This lecture on 15 April 2009 was presented by ANU Centre for Archeaological Research and the Canberra Archaeological Society
