LUNCH WITH BOOKS: Beneath the Poppies and Crosses

May 30, 2017


Event starts at 12:00 PM.

What Archaeology Reveals about the First World War 

This year marks the centenary of the United States’ entry into the First World War. To observe the anniversary, this program examines the recent contributions that archaeology has made to better understanding “the war to end all wars.” By highlighting battlefield excavations, personal artifacts, and the forensic analysis of the fallen from unmarked graves, this lecture will reveal recent discoveries that are transforming our knowledge of how individual combatants lived and died a century ago. Hank D. Lutton is a historian, scholar, and Registered Professional Archaeologist who specializes in historical archaeology. Hank is currently a curator at the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville.
