This chapter provides an evaluation of unnamed and smaller camps as well as prisons. By focusing on the architecture and spatiality of internment throughout, it considers both the uniqueness of Alderney’s camp system and its place within the wider Nazi camp system in Europe. Following historical research by a comprehensive programme of archaeological investigations across Alderney, comparisons were made between maps, aerial images, the MI19 documentation and physical remains observed during walkover surveys within a Geographic Information System (GIS), contributing towards our understanding of the extent and nature of the camps and internment sites. This process was particularly important as few witness testimonies exist that describe the sites in more detail. This chapter presents the findings of these investigations and concludes with a discussion of the unique and normative aspects of the Alderney camp system.
