The wreckage of a V2 rocket launched by Nazi Germany in London during World War II was excavated in a field in southeastern England, crashing and exploding before reaching its target.

This is the sixth major V2 site conducted by conflict archaeologists and brothers Colin and Sean Welch, who spent more than a decade investigating the Nazi “Revenge Weapons” site launched in the British capital. It is an excavation.
