The Council for British Archaeology’s Home Front Legacy team in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council Living Legacies First World War Engagement Centre are hosting a free community workshop in Cambridgeshire outlining how to research, record and fund your own First World War project. The workshop takes place on Friday 6th October 2017 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford. It is aimed at county and local archaeology and history societies, leaders from CBA’s Young Archaeologists’ Club branches, CBA regional groups and existing and emerging First World War community projects funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund or through the Arts and Humanities Research Council First World War Engagement Centres.

Places are limited so booking is essential using the Eventbrite link here:

During the workshops, there will be the opportunity to learn how to use the Home Front Legacy recording app to create new knowledge about the legacy of the First World War in your local area. You will also be introduced to the Home Front Legacy’s range of learning resources for young people. Help and advice will be available to help you set up your own First World War community project with guidance on funding available from the Heritage Lottery Fund and how you can apply, while representatives from existing First World War projects will provide inspiration by sharing their experiences.
