Northumberland at War

In May 2014 Heritage Lottery Fund made a grant of £46,500 to Northumberland Archives to allow us to explore some of the many collections that we hold relating to the First World War. Project volunteers working at Berwick-upon-Tweed Record Office and Northumberland Archives at Woodhorn will identify and list content, digitise some of it and promote the use of these collections via social media and a series of community events. We will also share some of the digital content that we create via our project on Historypin. Much of this content has been 'hidden' in our collections, perhaps within uncatalogued collections, and the project will make it accessible for the first time.
