Above and beyond the information it may yield regarding the conditions in which the deceased was buried, excavating a war grave is also an act of respect. It cannot be compared to the often purely scientific experience of excavating Gallo-Roman era tombs, going beyond the usual boundaries of the archaeological profession. War graves are often excavated more out of respect for the dead than for their intrinsic archaeological significance. Such excavations can reveal highly poignant individual stories.
