There is an increasing interest, in urban studies, sociology, and archaelogy, in military bunkers. The concept informed Paul Virilio's Bunker Archaeology (1994), for instance, and has been significant for the Brutalist tradition of European architects, including Le Corbusier. European cultural sociology has also expanded its themes and theorizing within particular militarised landscapes and bunkered urban locations, as has contemporary British archaeology.
