Meet expert historians, archivists, museum curators and funders at the Gateways to the First World War public open day on Sunday 28th September.

Gateways to the First World War and the National Maritime Museum are holding a day packed with information to inspire amateur historians and local history societies to get involved in the centenary events.

There’ll be a chance to meet with the Heritage Lottery Fund and representatives from the Gateways to the First World War project to find out how to access funds and support for your First World War project.

If you want to trace the role your ancestors played in this crucial period of British history specialists will be on hand to advise you how to tackle that research.

Throughout the day there will special documents and artefacts to see in the Museum Library, short talks from specialist historians, and a guided tour of the new Forgotten Fighters gallery.

Gateways to the First World War is a centre to encourage and support public engagement with the First World War Centenary, so if your group is planning any kind of project , do come along to the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich on Sunday 28th and make sure you access the support and expertise that’s on offer.
