Heart of Conflict: Cornwall’s World War One
Our project Heart of Conflict has been uncovering stories about World War One in Cornwall since 2014, the centenary of the start of the war. The aim is to uncover stories that have never previously been told. These are stories that didn’t make the history books but deserve to have a spotlight thrown on them. Click here to see Camborne Guides receiving interview training to record the stories.
We’ve been liaising with local historians, volunteers and community groups to gather stories and material to showcase and display.
We’ve staged exhibitions at the Royal Cornwall Museum, Truro plus
- the Cornish Studies Library
- Heartlands, Pool
- Camborne Library
- Redruth Wesleyan Chapel (2016)
- Donald Thomas Centre, Camborne
