Home Front Legacy and Living Legacies First World War Workshop Bristol

  • 21 October 2017 10am-5:30pm

Join the Council for British Archaeology’s Home Front Legacy team working with Living Legacies for a community workshop at St James Priory, Bristol and learn how to research, record and get funding for your own First World War project.
Discover how to record First World War sites in the UK
During the workshop you will learn how to get started recording the legacy of the Home Front in your local area. We will guide you through using the Council for British Archaeology's Home Front Legacy recording app which will enable you to find out about existing sites and add the information you discover to a UK wide map of sites. You’ll see just how easy it is to create new knowledge about the legacy of the First World War.

Access resources for young people-
We’ll share Home Front Legacy’s resources to help young people find out more and help us discover forgotten sites of the First World War. The wide range of activities, lesson plans and recording guides are designed to make it easy for individuals, families and youth groups to get involved.

Develop your own community project-
There will also be plenty of inspiration and advice to help you develop your own community project. Find out about funding opportunities available through the Heritage Lottery Fund and how to apply, and hear from some of the fantastic First World War projects that have already received help and support from Living Legacies.
Travel bursaries are available to members of community and volunteer groups. To find out more please contact
