Battlefield archaeology has been newsworthy of late and has attracted wide media attention. Yet for many archaeologists it is still the preserve of rather odd individuals with too great a fondness for the Commando comics they read as boys (the caricature identifies battlefield archaeologists as exclusively male). The truth is very different: battlefield and conflict archaeology is a lively and exciting sub-discipline of archaeology, where the rules are still being written and the landscape is wide open.
