World War I was fought on an industrial scale like nothing experienced before, with both sides using and developing increasingly lethal weapons. Artillery shells and machine guns wreaked havoc on the body; wounds often became infected from contact with the heavily manured agricultural soils of northern France, and the effects of gas and shell-shock were devastating but poorly understood.
Join Digging In on Sunday 16th of October to discover how, faced with this challenge, new equipment and techniques were invented that, across four years of fighting, would end up saving thousands of lives.
This event is suitable for all ages and will include living history, interactive learning, lectures and more.
