Have you ever been walking along a UK beach and seen rows of spikes sticking out of the sand? Or what on earth are the concrete blocks along the foreshore? Wonder no more. 
 
Come to this two day course and learn all about the defence mechanisms that were put in place to protect us from invasion in WWII. You'll also learn how to identify the remains of these coastal defences and how to archaeologically record them so at least the information about them will remain, as they crumble into the sea.
 
Through a combination of presentations, practical sessions and site walks, you'll learn how to recognise the remains of pillboxes, anti tank obstacles and gun emplacements. You'll also be able to interpret how the physical remains reflect contemporary defence strategies.
