WW1 Training, Magilligan

Students from across all three key stages accompanied Dr Heather Montgomery and her team from Queen's University Belfast at Magilligan earlier today. 

Together, they were looking for WW1 training trenches, in a project supported by MOD and CCGHT.  Already, the team have uncovered bullets, magazine cartridges and glass evidence of sand bagging.

The project is titled ‘WW1 Training, Magilligan’ and its overall aim is to compare the trench development with Northern France.  Thank you to Dr Andrew Bratton for contacting us, and involving us in such a worthwhile activity.

Well done to all involved!
