World War One around the UK

The Arts and Humanities Research Council has been playing a major role in the BBC’s flagship, UK-wide project, World War One at Home. This centrepiece of the BBC’s commemoration of the war links stories of the conflict to particular places in the UK – war memorials, factories, former hospitals, even zoos (in Bristol, convalescent soldiers were routinely taken to see the animals) – exploring what the war meant in different communities throughout the country.

Clicking on the regions in the interactive map below will take you to stories specific to that region. You can also read an introduction to the project.
