Journey back to the Home Front with new online resource
Following a year in development, The National Archives launches its exciting new online platform, Great Wharton.
The fully-responsive resource brings together the more quirky and unusual side of the British Home Front in the First World War, discoverable from a bird’s-eye perspective of the fictional town of Great Wharton.
With cases taken directly from our records – including an ‘egg train’, ginger beer strike and school pupils making munitions – take a journey through the town and delve into the lesser-known stories of the Home Front in this resource launched as part of our First World War 100 programme.
Start your journey to Great Wharton: www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/first-world-war/home-front-stories
The team behind Great Wharton will also be discussing the project at Voices of the Home Fronts, Friday 9 September.
