Are you involved in a First World War community research project? Are you interested in finding out more about the huge variety of historical records that are available to researchers?

Join Gateways to the First World War for a free event bringing together archives professionals and researchers to share advice on using national, local and online collections to discover more about the First World War. Gather hints and tips on accessing archive material and learn about some of the fascinating records that have survived and can be used to deepen our understanding of wartime lives.
