‘1917, Total War in Flanders’ – Exhibition 'Zero Hour 07-06-1917: the archaeology of a battle'

The thematic exhibition 'Zero Hour 07-06-1917: the archaeology of a battle' in the Heuvelland Visitors Centre (currently under construction) illustrates the material heritage left behind by the Mine Battle of Messines, in which a selection of excavated artefacts occupy a central position. The visitor will learn about the function of these objects during the battle and how they were rediscovered many years later. The exhibition also demonstrates how the wartime heritage has been dealt with in the years since the Great War came to an end. More info: www.flandersfields.be/en/1917
