stepped memorial Does "stepped" in this context refer to the structure of the memorial that is composed of two smaller arches under a bigger arch? It could be viewed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thiepval_Memorial Context: Lutyens designed the extraordinary British war memorial at Thiepval in France (1928–1932) – the Memorial to the Missing – which bears the names of 72,000 British soldiers whose bodies remain lost. It looks like a vast, stepped memorial arch of brick and stone.

Yes, it means it either has, or looks like it has, a series of steps (stairs).
