Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Scorched Earth: Studies in the Archaeology of Conflict contains the table of contents and editorial. There has of late been a marked upsurge of interest in the study of the recent past, not least within the field of conflict archaeology, as exemplified by a number of academic books and papers covering issues as diverse as Cold War missile installations, the Maze prison in Ireland and the Berlin wall. Particularly noticeable within this general trend, however, has been a growing interest in the archaeology of the First World War. One of the purposes of the book is to reflect this phenomenon through a variety of different approaches and investigative contexts. It seems fitting therefore that the editorial provide a brief overview of some of the key developments in this growing field, while also going on to suggest some avenues for future research.

Keywords: Cold War; conflict archaeology; First World War; Ireland
