Received from Claire Corkhill, Council for British Archaeology. If you are interested in this project please contact her directly.
In Spring 2018 the Council for British Archaeology’s Home Front Legacy team, in partnership with the Living Legacies 1914-18 First World War Engagement Centre, are hosting three First World War workshops to help you learn how to research, record and fund your own First World War project. Please could I ask you to share the details of these events with your colleagues and volunteer networks. The first workshop will be held on Saturday 24 March at the Engine Shed, Stirling. This will be a two-part event with a session on the development of the CBA’s Young Archaeologists’ Club across Scotland in the morning, followed by the First World War workshop in the afternoon. The second, on Sunday 15 April, will be hosted by CBA Wales as part of their conference ‘Archaeology in Wales 2018’ at the University of Trinity Saint David in Lampeter. Finally, on Thursday 26 April the Living Legacies team will host the final workshop at Queen’s University, Belfast. We are also continuing to encourage and advise groups, societies and individuals who would like to record the places and buildings from the Home Front in their local area. If you are unable to attend one of our workshops you will find all the information you need to start recording on the Home Front Legacy website, or you can contact myself or Project Officer Chris Kolonko (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you might have. Finally, we are always looking for new Home Front Legacy Champions, so if you know an individual or group who are already adding to the Home Front Legacy app, or who have been researching the First World War in their local area and may like to share their knowledge with us please do get in touch. Our Champions make a valuable contribution to our understanding of the Home Front and we would like to highlight the great work they are doing via our blog and social media channels.
