First World War Memory Project

Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds is a partner in an EU-funded project on historical memory in adult learning. We’re working with Prince Henry’s Grammar School in Otley to offer a 10-week evening class supporting adult learners to research the history and memory of the First World War in Yorkshire, with the aim of creating an exhibition for the museum. The course is led by Dr Tracy Craggs and Emma King.

This blog documents our journey and provides space for participants (and anyone else!) to discuss our research.

Our EU project partners are based in Spain, Italy, Poland, Slovenia and Cyprus. Read more about the EU partnership and the background to our work at
