Alongside our core Project Team the project has an Advisory Board that comprises university and museum-based academics working in the fields of cultural and visual anthropology, military history, military anthropology and archaeology.

This multi-disciplinary group convenes bi-yearly and provides academic oversight and expert advice and networks for our project outputs.
