The Event

Discover the scientific aspects of World War One. In a series of hands-on activities you’ll be able to learn about trench archaeology, the chemical development of poison gas and have a go at making your own periscope!

Explore a frontline medical station with leading military historian Andrew Robertshaw, which includes a range of real and replica items related to the work of the Royal Army Medical Corps.

You’re also encouraged to bring family photographs, letters and other ephemera to our Ask an Expert panel – they can help identify them and reveal what these items say about your relatives’ military history.
