the other thing would be to use any old maps etc of the camp to identify areas of higher risk eg range areas are more likely to have ordnance surviving than say ablutions, but obviously anywhere on a camp will be a risk.
There a good CBA guide about investigating WWII sites, can't remember what its called but its worth getting if your gonna do this.
sounds like a good project

Can comment on the H&S aspects, but have you thought of utilising metal
detectors on site to locate any metallic targets prior to digging?
Will give you a chance to evealuate any potential ordnance threats from the
number/size and placements of located targets.

Subject: [BRITARCH] Working WW2 sites
Hi, i am in the process of maybe undertaking some recording work on a WW2
Canadian training camp in Sussex, i am looking for pointers in the right
direction as regard to Health and Safety, ( live buried ammunition !!) the
site may all so contain a cold war bunker.
Investigation as to what may lay under 50 years of undergrowth could be i
seen as problem, so advice is sort,
