Call for papers

Archaeologia Polona vol. 61: 2023

Special issue: 20th-century conflict archaeology

Deadline:   31 October 2022

We invite You to submit articles presenting the results of archaeological research on the traces of great armed conflicts in the 20th century. A major theme will be focused on the Great War and the Second World War. The papers may also concern issues related to other local conflicts in 20th-century Europe. We are interested in various aspects of research on this topic – the battlefields, fortifications, prisoner-of-war and concentration camps, execution sites, and other remnants of 20th-century conflicts. We attach great importance to the issue of restoring the memory of the victims of the above-mentioned conflicts. We encourage You to submit the texts that advance the historical knowledge, achieved thanks to the results of archaeological and archaeological-exhumation research.

We hope that such a broadly formulated spectrum of problems will allow to achieve a new view of basic issues and permit a fresh assessment of the research level quality regarding the traces of great armed conflicts in the 20th century. We hope that these issues will bring us closer to a fuller knowledge of this subject.
