Visiting and Revisiting the Battlefields

Event date Event time Event location
08/02/2018 11:00 am - 3:15 pm Westgate Hall, Westgate Hall Road, Canterbury

Join this free event at Westgate Hall, Canterbury, to launch two new booklets exploring the history of First World War battlefield visits during the 1920s and 1930s.

The booklets are the result of the Visiting and Revisiting the Battlefields crowd-sourcing project devised by Professor Mark Connelly and supported by a team of volunteer researchers, funded by Gateways to the First World War through the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The event will include a screening of the 1918 film Ypres – The Shell Shattered City of Flanders, talks from current battlefield guides, and roundtable discussion of some of the key themes raised by the project.
