How the Great War Changed Kent 1914-1928
18 May 2015
Experts in the local history of Kent will be hosting a day of talks and workshops to examine the social impact and aftermath the Great War, 1914 - 1928, had on the county and its communities.
How the Great War Changed Kent 1914-1928, has been organised by The Centre for Research in Kent History and Archaeology at Canterbury Christ Church University. This period witnessed considerable changes as the county, and country, readjusted to peace after the profound impact of the War. The day will look at the lives, roles and responsibilities of men, women and children in Kent during the Great War and afterwards, through a series of talks and workshops.
The final sessions will focus on memories and artefacts from the time, as well as literary responses to the Great War.
How the Great War Changed Kent 1914-1928, Saturday 23 May 2015, 9:30 to 17:00, Old Sessions House, Canterbury Christ Church University. Tickets are £18 per person (concessions £15 for OAPs and students)
