Running during the centenary of the First World War this was a collaborative project with the School of Humanities and heritage groups and organisations in the City. We contributed to several events and exhibitions and one of the projects legacies is the website telling the story of Dundee and its inhabitants in the Great War. The University Archivist, along with Matthew Jarron, the University Museum Curator, and colleagues from Humanities won the Stephen Fry Award for Public Engagement for the project.
