ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effort of a British archaeological team from University College London and Keele University to map the site of the camp in Zagan, Poland, turning up traces of more than 100 tunnels using ground-penetrating radar. Among the finds were Red Cross milk cans, which prisoners strung together to ventilate the tunnels. The team also located the famed tunnel used during the March 24, 1944, escape of 76 Allied airmen.
