20th Century Defences in Britain
An introductory guide
Handbook of the Defence of Britain Project (Revised edition)
edited by B Lowry
During the First and Second World Wars, Britain’s landscape was transformed by a wide variety of military constructions – pill boxes, anti-tank obstacles, coastal batteries, bombing decoys, radar stations, airfield, and many more.
The remains of these works are all around us. They are also under threat. Fifty years after the end of World War Two, coastal erosion, agriculture, redevelopment and neglect are destroying them at an alarming rate. This illustrated handbook provides an introductory guide to the recognition and interpretation of Britain’s wartime archaeology.
