Launch of the ‘Faces of Time’ Comic Book – Stories from the Ballykinlar History Hut 

Down County Museum and Queen’s University, Centre for Data Digitisation & Analysis are delighted to launch a digital comic book about how the lives of three men were interlinked with the story of Ballykinlar Camp in the first half of the 20th century – James Hughes, a Belfast-born soldier of the First World War, Peter Byrne, a Dublin-born internee of the Irish War of Independence, and William Wolfe, a Chicago-born GI on his way to the Normandy landings in the Second World War. The book has been brilliantly designed and illustrated by the CDDA team, who have run a highly successful Ballykinlar Camp public engagement programme over 2 years. The project was completed for Newry, Mourne and Down District Council with the financial support of the Special European Union Programmes Body through its PEACE IV Programme.

Special thanks goes to the research and design team, Heather Montgomery, Deirdre Drain, Nicholas Tracey and Josh Montgomery.

IWM - MAPPING THE CENTENARY

 

Mapping the Centenary is a digital portal containing information about projects and activities that marked the First World War Centenary from 2014 – 2019.

We invite organisations and individuals to tell us about their activity - from websites to events, to learning resources and historical research – to help us to understand how the centenary was marked. Launching in June 2020, we will create a searchable database, link to project websites where applicable, and provide guidance on archiving and digital preservation.

Mapping the Centenary is developed with the kind support of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

We would  like to invite you/your contacts to complete a listing for inclusion, via https://www.iwm.org.uk/partnerships/mapping-the-centenary. The ‘Add Your Project’ Submission form takes roughly fifteen minutes to fill out, and will act to ensure that the legacy of projects is recorded within this national repository. Sharing the link will also help to raise awareness so that others can do the same, so please pass this on to anyone who may be interested. 

PRESERVING DIGITAL PROJECTS

IWM cannot host or preserve websites, or digital or physical content, on your behalf. But we can recommend some resources to help you preserve your online project.
