CBA's Home Front Legacy Project

The Home Front Legacy project helps local communities find out about, and map, the remains of the First World War, and raise awareness of the wide range of archaeology that survives across the UK. There are a number of ways you can get involved and NNAS encourages members to take part:

  • Have a look at the website and see what has already been recorded near you.
  • Work with your local branch of the Young Archaeologists Club using our resources for young people:
  • Share information about the project with your members and encourage them to get involved via your newsletters and social media.

To find out more please take a look at the Home Front Legacy website where you will find out all about the recording app, be able to search the sites that have been recorded so far, access useful resources, and discover all the latest news and research via our blog. When you do get involved, please share your pictures and news about what you have been doing on our social media sites.

To spread the word about this project, and get more people involved, we want to build up our network of Home Front Legacy Champions. We would like to find five champions in each region of England, who have made an outstanding contribution to the project by inspiring and supporting others to get involved, researching the history of sites, or showing a high standard of recording. They might be members of CBA groups, county, or local societies, or from another First World War project. If you know someone who would make a great champion please contact Claire Corkill

If you have any questions about recording or using the app you can contact Chris Kolonko, our Home Front Legacy Project Officer.
