Great War Archive

Oxford University is marking the 90th anniversary of Armistice Day by launching two new websites which allow educators, scholars and the public to view previously unseen memorabilia and poetry from World War I.
The 'Great War Archive' and the 'First World War Poetry Archive' bring together 13,500 digital images of items mainly of rare primary source material. Many items submitted to the 'Great War Archive' by members of the public are treasured family heirlooms which have never been on public display.
