100 Days Centenary Countdown: Thank You and Continued Recording
As we approach the 100th centenary of Armistice Day Home Front Legacy also approaches its conclusion. Home Front Legacy will come to an end in late December 2018.
Claire and Chris of the Home Front Legacy team would like to give a big thank you to our dedicated team of Home Front Legacy Champions, our project partners and everyone who has recorded sites through the project. Without you it would not have been possible to make Home Front Legacy the success it has become.
We would also like to thank our Twitter and Facebook followers for engaging with us and bringing our project to a wider audience.
Queen’s University Belfast’s Living Legacies 1914-18 have been a valuable project partner, providing extensive support and expertise, allowing us to run a series of collaborative workshops during 2017-2018. For this we are extremely grateful and we give you our thanks.
Thanks also go to Fjordr & the East Coast War Channels project, CITiZAN, the Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War project, The IWM’s Lives of the First World War, the Young Archaeologists’ Club, Archaeosoup and many more project partners for their support and for also providing data sets for inclusion on the Home Front Legacy Map of Sites.
A big thank you goes to Historic England for funding and supporting Home Front Legacy throughout its duration.
Finally, a huge thank you to the Council for British Archaeology for establishing the project, keeping us on track, and providing support.
Continuing to Record Home Front Sites
The end of Home Front Legacy doesn’t mean that you can no longer record First World War Home Front sites. You can continue to further enhance our understanding of how the First World War changed the landscape of the UK. Your continued recording can also help preserve further sites for future generations.
It is best to record your sites directly with the relevant heritage organisations.
In England you can record First World War Home Front sites through the relevant local Historic Environment Record. Contact details for Historic Environment Records can be found on the Heritage Gateway website.
The same applies for Scotland; sites can be recorded through the local Historic Environment Records. Contact details can be found HERE
In Wales you can record sites through the Welsh Archaeological Trusts. Contact details for the Welsh Archaeological Trusts can be found HERE.
Our project data will be published through the Archaeology Data Service shortly.
