Archaeology Matters

Home Front Legacy 1914-18 day school

Weston Camp

Join us on 25 April 2015 to find out how to research and record First World War remains in your area, using our toolkit and app to share your knowledge with your local Historic Environment Record and display your research on our UK map of sites. 

You don’t need to be an archaeologist or have experience of fieldwork to take part. The workshop will be of interest to family and local history groups, First World War Centenary projects and interest groups and everyone interested in the impact of the Home Front on the places we live in today.

This day school will:

• Get you actively involved with the Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project to share your local knowledge for future generations

• Share the project toolkit and resources to use within your own projects, or to start one up

• Enable you to start discovering your local First World War surviving sites, structures

and buildings using online resources.

• Give you the skills and confidence to share your learning with your community group

• Provide the forum to share your projects and to meet potential partners. 

The event is hosted by the Council for British Archaeology, CBA East and English Heritage at the Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey, Essex EN9 1JX.
