The World War I Timeline

The World War I Crossroads is proud to present the World War I Timeline. This interactive feature is a new way on H-Net to examine the events of the Great War and to place the many different elements of the conflict into context.

The Timeline is the result of the hard work of H-Net staff and is an example of the new possibilities available on the new Commons platform.

The Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War Project

Forgotten Wrecks of the First World War is a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) four year project devised and delivered by the Maritime Archaeology Trust to coincide with the centenary of the Great War. At the heart of the project is a desire to raise the profile of a currently under-represented aspect of the First World War. While attention is often focused on the Western Front and major naval battles like Jutland, historic remains from the war lie, largely forgotten, in and around our seas, rivers and estuaries.
