About The WW1 Timeline

This timeline explores the impact of the First World War on the Humber region through museum and archive collections.

It was created through a partnership between the museum services in Hull, the East Riding of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire, supported by Arts Council England, to mark the centenary of the First World War. The ‘Joining Up the Humber’ project revealed new and challenging stories about the conflict, bringing a local perspective to a global event. We have also created First World War learning resources specifically for teachers and students at: www.mylearning.org/joiningupthehumberww1
