Commemorating the Welsh experience of the Great War at sea, Conference 3-4 November, 2018
This two-day conference will explore the experience of the mariners and communities of Wales who were engaged in Royal Navy, Mercantile Marine and fishing industries during the First World War. The conference is intended both to showcase research and projects which have been undertaken during the commemorative period, but also to encourage further research and community-led heritage projects that explore the continuing impact of the conflict in the post-war period.
As well as a full programme of speakers on both days, there will be practical, hands-on demonstrations and training in the use of online resources for researchers and a walk-and-talk tour of Hancock’s Yard with David James. The conference is held in conjunction with the U-boat project 1914-18’s full exhibition which highlights the WW1 wrecks and tells the community stories uncovered by our museum and community partners from around Wales.
