The everyday lives of working-class people in the east of Cambridge during the Great War

Showcasing research by 100 Years of Coconuts (http://100yearsofcoconuts.co.uk)

While tales of the staff and students of the University of Cambridge during the First World War are commonplace, stories of the working class people of the city — many of whom served the dons and scholars before departing for the Front — are more difficult to find. What's more, the experiences of those who remained at home have been all but ignored.

Barnwell at War is a collaboration between local researchers, Wolfson College and the Everyday Lives in War First World War Engagement Centre at the University of Hertfordshire, funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council, that seeks to redress the balance by exploring cultural memories of a part of Cambridge that is usually well beyond the gaze of tourists, examining changes to patterns of life during an era of previously unparalleled trauma.

A six-week exhibition, to be held the Dining Parlour of the Museum of Cambridge. Entrance fees are included in our admission price; concessions apply
