Durham at War – Mapping the story of County Durham and its people in the First World War

November 8, 2014 3 comments

 

Mapping the Story of County Durham and its people in the First World War.

This is a First World War centenary project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by the archive, museum and archaeology services at Durham County Council.

Durham at War is an interactive mapping website that will tell the story of County Durham and its people in the First World War. Launched on 10 September 2014, exactly one hundred years after the first Durham Light Infantry soldiers arrived in France with the British Expeditionary Force, the website will be live until the end of 2018. It will help to commemorate the role of Durham people at a momentous period in the county’s history. We hope that the website will act like a giant virtual jigsaw, making the links between the archives, objects and sites that survive today, and helping to uncover new stories about local communities 100 years ago.

From November members of the public will be able to log in to the website worldwide to add their own contributions and pin them to the interactive map. Until then please send information for the website by email.

This website is not designed to duplicate, rather to complement, existing web-based resources. It will use the interactive map to make the links between the rich diversity of information that is already available or is being developed online, and add new details from institutional and private collections that have never been accessible in a digital format before.

Throughout the centenary period project staff will run a series of research modules, training sessions and events to help volunteers explore relevant heritage collections in depth and publish their discoveries on the website.
