The funeral of a British soldier on X-Track Cemetery which was found during the excavations on the site of Turco (left).
The First World War is still a living feature in British heritage: a picture of the 'Remembrance'-crosses and poppies left behind by British visitors on the excavation site of Cross Roads, on the place where a soldier was found (right).


The many tourists and visitors to the excavation site also expressed their respect for the retrieved bodies of the soldiers. At two spots where soldiers were found on the Cross Roads site, makeshift memorials of poppies and remembrance crosses were made, thus indicating that the excavation site itself became some sort of place of pilgrimage and a focus of great interest for the public (Every year the region receives 300.000 to 350.000 ‘battlefield tourists’.).
