This enormous trench system model is currently being excavated near me. It was built in the First World War as a training aid. The idea is the scan it when is all been uncovered and then cover it up again, as it's quite fragile. They will then construct a virtual model and eventually, maybe, a physical replica elsewhere.

I took Great Uncle John's engraved shell case up there, as he didn't have the pleasure of the Western Front. He had rather better weather in the Dardanelles.
