About the project
This project will conduct mass digitization of primary sources relating to World War One from the Libraries, Special Collections and Archives of Wales. Wales had the highest level of recruitment of any UK country during World War One. The project will make available a coherent, consolidated digital collection revealing the often hidden history of World War One as it impacted all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture. These source materials are presently fragmented and frequently inaccessible, yet they collectively form a unique resource of vital interest to researchers, students, and the public in Wales and beyond.
