Abstract

In the past two decades, the archaeology of recent conflicts has emerged as a credible, popular and significant field of heritage concern and archaeological study. Thus recent military remains provide a new dimension in heritage studies, offering significant and challenging additions to historic and cultural resources, while containing commemorative, symbolic, social and spiritual values (Schofield 2009). The territory of Lithuania, being geographically on the crossroads of historical conflicts in Europe, is particularly rich in such sites: a mass grave of Napoleonic soldiers from 1812 (Signoli et al. 2004) and numerous unpublished cases are good examples.
