The CBA is working with Historic England and partners across the UK to help local communities identify and map the remains of the First World War Home Front.

Running from 2014-2018, the Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project is supporting community groups researching local places associated with the Great War with an online toolkit and guidance for recording the remains of surviving sites, structures and buildings around Britain.

You don’t need to be an archaeologist or have experience of fieldwork to take part.  You may have an interest in the Home Front, and be researching your family or local area, or involved in a First World War Centenary project.

This day school gets you actively involved with the Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project.  It is being hosted at the University of Winchester with Historic England and includes speakers Dan Miles Historic England, Phil Marter University of Winchester and Richard Osgood Senior Archaeologist, Defence Infrastructure Organisation.
