First World War Home Front research which has been conducted over the centenary period, for presentation at this two-day conference at The National Archives, Kew in London.

The conference, ‘Voices of the Home Fronts: Reflections and Legacies of the First World War’, is being delivered in partnership by The National Archives, the ‘Gateways to the First World War’ and the ‘Everyday Lives in War’ Engagement Centres.

With the centenary of the end of the First World War approaching, this conference seeks to bring together independent researchers, community groups and academics to discuss the impact of the Armistice. This includes life and society in the immediate aftermath of the war - from national and international perspectives - through the use of unusual and under-used sources.
