When World War 1 broke out, 61-year-old Flinders Petrie tried to join up and later had to watch while his students and wife put on military uniforms. 'Different Perspectives' considers the use of archaeologists in campaigns in the Middle East, the archaeological legacy and the human cost of the war.
