Virtual EHOD will take place from 7 to 13 September.

Whilst this year’s EHOD looks a little different to previous years the main aim is still to allow people to visit properties and locations, albeit virtually. We are working hard on a timetable for the week-long event to deliver virtual visits to sites and properties, offer guided tours and host lectures and talks. You can keep up to date on what is happening across our social media channels and view all events on our Facebook.

2020-06-02 # Mapping the Centenary



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

We invite 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. Launching in June 2020, we will create a searchable database, link to project websites where applicable, and provide guidance on archiving and digital preservation.

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

We would  like to invite you/your contacts to complete a listing for inclusion, via The ‘Add Your Project’ Submission form takes roughly fifteen minutes to fill out, and will act to ensure that the legacy of projects is recorded within this national repository. Sharing the link will also help to raise awareness so that others can do the same, so please pass this on to anyone who may be interested. 


IWM cannot host or preserve websites, or digital or physical content, on your behalf. But we can recommend some resources to help you preserve your online project.
