This is the website of Archaeologist Chris Kolonko. If you are interested in learning more about pillboxes and other the physical remains of the Second World War in the UK 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.

Spotted a pillbox while out and about? Find out how you can research, record and help preserve surviving defences in the UK with my Recording Guide. Also, be sure to contact your local Historic Environment Record to pass on your information.

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.
