“Hill 80” was a German fortification in the town of Wytschaete, Belgium that was occupied from October 1914 all the way until the autumn of 1917. It has been untouched since, and today offers a fantastic opportunity for archaeologists to excavate a large and very well-preserved German fortification from WW1. A team of dedicated professional battlefield archaeologists is raising funds to conduct a full-scale excavation on the site in 2018, and they need our help to do it. The fundraiser only runs until December 17, so if you you share my interest in this history please act now by making a contribution and spreading the project to you friends!
Disclaimer: I have no financial interest in this, nor do I personally know the team behind it. I have contributed to the fundraiser myself, and if it succeeds I hope to be able to film either some of the dig or the final results for you!
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
