Overview
Mapping the Centenary is a digital portal containing information about projects and activities that marked the First World War Centenary from 2014 – 2019.

Between June 2020 and March 2021, we invited organisations and individuals to tell us about their activity - from websites to events, to learning resources and historical research - to help us to understand how the centenary was marked. Please note that IWM is not responsible for the content of external websites.

Mapping the Centenary was developed with the kind support of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
