News & Events Over There: Kickstarter Campaign, Dig Hill 80–Excavating an Endangered WW1 Battlefield

The primary subject of this website is the Meuse-Argonne Offensive of late 1918.  Periodically, other notable projects, websites and events are brought to the Webmaster’s attention.  Recently, he was made aware of a Kickstarter campaign to fund an archeological dig of a German strongpoint in the Ypres Salient, atop Hill 80 near Wijtschate, Belgium.  He believes this project is worthy of readers’ consideration.


Please view the details and video at this website:


Dig Hill 80 Kickstart Campaign


However, speed is of the essence!  It appears that there are only four days remaining to fund the project!  (Between holiday preparations and a cold, the Webmaster has been late in posting this information.)


Going forward, the Webmaster will try to keep readers up to date on project developments.  Updates from European readers involved in the project are also welcome.
