This chapter examines the archaeological landscape of the Gallipoli peninsula, with a focus on the remains of the 1915 conflict within the modern commemorative landscape. The cultural landscape of the Gallipoli battlefields provide complex evidence from the past, drawn together here within a spatial framework that articulates the substantial archaeological contribution to this contextual study of past human conflict. This recent research uses historical spatial data (specifically, military maps and plans from the World War I era) in conjunction with archaeological survey and GIS to investigate the formation and preservation of archaeological features in the Anzac area on the Gallipoli peninsula, concentrating on the area known as Lone Pine/Kanli Sirt.
