The Belgian village of Ploegsteert, south of Ypres, was known to the occupying British and Commonwealth soldiers during the First World War as 'Plugstreet'. Investigating the involvement of the Australian 3rd Infantry Division in the area, this record of the authors' archaeological research - at the battlefield and at a training camp on Salisbury Plain - has uncovered many artefacts that reveal details of the soldiers' life in the trenches and, in some cases, death in battle.
