Leftovers at the battlefield. Pieces of French Flak guns at Arnhem

As an archaeologist specializing in World War 2 remains, in my spare time I visit many features and landscapes in and around my home town of Arnhem. During these strolls I occasionally come across objects that have been lying there for time to be consumed. Some of these are too interesting not to share with others. In this article, I will discuss these leftovers from one particular site: a former German anti-aircraft site or Flak-Stellung. What make these finds stand out is the fact that these are remains of German Beutewaffen (captured arms), in this case French guns, which may also have a direct link with operation Market Garden. This document simply serves as the documentation of these finds, so the archaeological relevance and historical context of them can be understood…..
