  9 Apr 2015   Home Front Legacy 1914- 1918 Day School organised by CBA East Saturday, 25 April 2015 from 10:30 to 16:30 at Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey, EN9 1JX  
  Recording First World War sites in the UK for community groups CBA is working with Historic England and partners across the UK to help local communities identify and map the remains of the First World War in Britain. Running from 2014-2018, the Home Front Legacy project is supporting community groups researching local places associated with the Great War with an online toolkit and guidance for recording the remains of surviving sites, structures and buildings around Britain. Using our online toolkit and the resources on the Home Front Legacy website, everyone can help to research and record their local sites and structures and help to safeguard First World War survivals here in Britain. Exploring these remains brings you into closer contact with what our families lived through, and the ways in which the Great War shaped their lives and where we live today. You don’t need to be an archaeologist or have experience of fieldwork to take part. You may have an interest in local or family history or already be involved in a First World War Centenary project about your local area. CBA invites local community group members, national and local stakeholders to this day school to find out how to use the recording toolkit and on line app for your project.
This day school will: •Get you actively involved in the Home Front Legacy Project •Share the toolkit and resources to get started on new projects •Enable you to start discovering your local First World War surviving sites, structures and buildings using online resources. •Give you the skills and confidence to share your learning with your community group •Provide the forum to share your projects and to meet potential partners
