This is the blog page of Archaeologist Chris Kolonko. If you are interested in learning more about the physical remains of the Second World War in the UK and elsewhere, or just love a good piece of old concrete, then you have come to the right place!

This page aims to promote the field of Second World War defences on the Home Front; allowing others to research, record and interpret surviving Second World War remains in the UK.

Find out more and learn how to record your local surviving Second World War defences over on the UK Second World War Heritage Facebook group.
