World War One
Wales Remembers is the official site for information on how Wales will mark the centenary of the First World War.
It provides a focal point for information on the latest news, projects, events and signposting services for the programme of commemoration which will take place in Wales from 2014 to 2018.
Wales at War
Wales at War” will develop a First World War commemoration activity for schoolchildren in Wales, supporting them to develop biographies of the names on the War Memorials of Wales. The project will develop resources to help children use existing online and print resources to learn about the lives of members of the Welsh Armed Forces who fell in the conflict between 1914 and 18.
Cymru 1914 - The Welsh Experience of the First World War
This project has conducted mass digitization of primary sources relating to the First World War from the Libraries, Special Collections and Archives of Wales. The project will make available a coherent, consolidated digital collection revealing the often hidden history of the First World War as it impacted all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture. This digital archive brings together source materials that were previously fragmented and frequently inaccessible. This digital archive is a unique resource of vital interest to researchers, students, and the public in Wales and beyond.
