A major archaeological survey of the Gallipoli battlefields, now on display at the Shrine, reveals the brutal realities of daily life in the trenches for both the allied and Turkish sides.

This discussion explores what the survey reveals about the nature of World War One, the way in which different combatants understood their role and the meaning of the Dardanelles Campaign.

Join host Maxine McKew with guests Dr Andrew Jamieson, School of Historical and Philosophical Studies (Melbourne University), Professor Chris Mackie, School of Humanities and Social Sciences (Latrobe University) , and Dr Jessie Birkett Rees, Archaeology and History (Monash University) at the Shrine of Remembrance.

The ANZAC Battlefield: Landscape of War and Memory is showing at the Shrine of Remembrance from 14 April 2015 - 31 August 2015.

This event is part of the University of Melbourne ANZAC Centenary Lectures, presented in partnership with the Shrine of Remembrance.
