Use our resources to start your research, upload it to national records and share with other participants. Your contribution will add to our knowledge of the First World War (WW1) and inform future protection of sites. Use this site to:
- Start a new project recording First World War, sites, structures and buildings and their associated stories. Have a look at our starting point pages for ideas, the rural landscape, the urban landscape and events.
- Keep up to date with sites you and others have recorded with our online map
- You can use the search feature on the map to discover the distribution of sites, that have been plotted to date. For many site types there will be gaps, so for example if you search for training camps, you will see a scarcity of these so far recorded on our map.
- Register to use our recording toolkit to upload your research. Once registered you can also use the binocular function to home in on your local area to see what has been recorded to date.
- Access online resources and case studies
- Follow the project via social media and share your research with others
- Add your site photos to our Flickr gallery
- Read the project Blog
- Learn how to record sites with our Site Recording Guide. This guide features practical advice and a series of ‘toolbox talk’ videos which demonstrate techniques of recording with the Home Front Legacy recording app.
