Welcome!

The Memories of War project is an attempt to articulate some of the hundreds of memories that people have shared with us in a more public arena. By looking beyond the headlines and focusing on the oral histories of people who witnessed and experienced very different aspects of war, this project both reinforces and challenges how we choose to remember events.

Using a mixture of previously unheard oral testimony and visual images, new narratives can be revealed which allow for a twenty-first century interpretation of the People’s War – a conflict that is still being fought over today.
