APPRAISING AND EXCAVATING FIRST WORLD WAR REMAINS IN THE ILE-DE-FRANCE REGION:
Information of use to preventive archaeology of the Paris entrenchment

 

Abstract

From 1914 to 1918, thousands of military structures were built, rebuilt and maintained as part of the entrenchment to protect Paris. The Ile-de-France landscape still contains many remains of these structures. Examination of thirty-odd excavation reports has enabled study of the entrenchment’s development and identification of the principal physical characteristics. Comparison of this data with archival material underlines the need to cross-check sources in order to improve analysis. The present article is drawn from a regional collaborative project dedicated to archaeological study of the construction of the Paris entrenchment.
