Radcliffe-on-Trent in WW1 website launched

Rosemary Collins, who will be participating in the roundtable on academic and community partnerships at the conference, has notified us that the website linked to her University of the Third Age project investigating the impact of the war on the village of Radcliffe-on-Trent is now live.

Visitors can view the website here: http://www.radcliffeontrentww1.org.uk/

The site includes biographies of 370 servicemen, analysis of names on Radcliffe war memorial, walks round the village in 1914, discussion of local women’s changing roles, war letters, work done with Radcliffe Junior School and much more, and is the work of Rosemary and volunteers from the community project.

Rosemary will be appearing alongside colleagues from other community projects, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the AHRC First World War Public Engagement Centres, to discuss the possibilities and pitfalls of academic and community partnerships in the commemoration of and continued research into the First World War.
