Welcome to the Archeology of the Great War! This is an incredible interactive site dedicated to the history of World War I or the Great War.

Warning: You may not want to check this out at work, because as far as I can tell there is no way to turn the sound off. While it provides intense ambiance it is not conducive to quiet viewing. You can, of course, turn your sound off to view it.  With that said let’s dive in!

You can navigate by either clicking enter the site and clicking on things in each section, or you can scroll down the page and select what you’d like to interact with. In the top left corner of the page, there is a hamburger menu that opens up sectional navigation options and language choices (French, English, and German). At times you’ll find arrows on the right and left side of the page that will let you learn more about the section you’re visiting.  You can also click the More Infos buttons to learn more about a particular section.

For example, if you click More Infos in the first section Called Up to the Front you can watch the evolution of the front line through the years 1914 to 1918. From there you’ll be able to visit different landscapes and encampments.

Overall, this site is a stunning interactive masterpiece that will leave you with a better understanding of the archeology of the Great War.
