Samenvatting

The province of Western Flanders in Belgium contains a particular kind of heritage: the World War I remains. Because this heritage is threatened by the plans for the extension of the A19 motorway The Flemish Heritage Institute made an extensive historical and archaeological study of these remains. For this purpose a special World War I archaeology Department was established. Because of financial reasons the initiative was taken to establish the Association for World War Archaeology (A.W.A.). A brief description of this initiative
and its results will be presented.
