(SEAArch) WWII battlefield archaeology exhibition in Singapore

Bullet by bullet, badge by badge, archaeologists and heritage enthusiasts have spent a year unearthing the secrets of a key World War II battle at Adam Park. Now, the finds and stories from the first battlefield archaeological dig in Singapore will be on display at an exhibition at the National Library Building from Wednesday. It will be accompanied by another on works of art by prisoner of war (POW) William Haxworth, who later became Chief Superintendent of Traffic in colonial Singapore’s police force. The events are among several to mark the 70th anniversary of the fall of Singapore, on Feb 15.
