What is Dig Hill 80?
Hello from Simon Verdegem. In 2015 I was part of a team of archaeologists that discovered an extraordinarily well preserved trench fortress near the village of Wijtschate in Belgium. Together with Peter Doyle, a leading military historian from the UK and Robin Schäfer an expert of the German army of both world wars, we need your help.
