‘Mapping the Centenary’ – Record Your First World War Centenary Project

23 June 2020

Mapping the Centenary’ is a digital portal containing information about projects and activities that marked the First World War Centenary from 2014 – 2019.

Launching in June 2020, the portal will feature a searchable database, provide links to project websites where applicable, and provide guidance on archiving and digital preservation. This initiative is being led by Imperial War Museums, and developed with the kind of support of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

We would like to invite organisations and individuals who are members of the Royal Historical Society to tell us about their commemorative activities – from projects, websites and events to learning resources and historical research – to help us understand how the centenary was marked.

To complete a listing for inclusion, please visit https://www.iwm.org.uk/partnerships/mapping-the-centenary.

The ‘Add Your Project’ Submission form takes roughly fifteen minutes to fill out, and will act to ensure that the legacy of projects is recorded within this national repository. Sharing this link will also help to raise awareness so that others can do the same, so please circulate it with anyone who may be interested.
