First words
There has of late been a marked upsurge of interest in the study of the recent past, not least within the field of conflict archaeology, as exemplified by a number of academic books and papers covering issues as diverse as Cold War missile installations (Cocroft & Wilson 2006), the Maze prison in Ireland (Purbrick 2007; McLaughlin 2006) and the Berlin wall (Klausmeier & Schmidt 2006).
