The search for lost burials is one of the more challenging aspects of our work. Working with anthropologists, specialists, and archaeologists, our historians have developed a methodology in searching for missing sites, using archive sources and mapping software to build composite maps. The most successful use of this approach was in Mombasa, where two likely First World War burial sites have been located and progress is now underway to work with the communities affected. This approach could be mirrored across East Africa.
