Archaeology Talks 2018: WWII

Sussex was on the frontline in 1940 – if the RAF had failed and the Wehrmacht had invaded the area would have been of major strategic importance to both sides. We will look at the defences themselves – pillboxes, anti-tank ditches and heavy guns sited on the Downs, along with aerial photographs taken by the Luftwaffe whilst planning their invasion. Eye-witness accounts and photographs of the period will form a part of this talk, and there will be a large selection of objects from the time available for handling afterwards.
