Inspired by History: Who Do I Think I Was?
This website has been developed as part of the Who Do I Think I Was? project.
Who Do I Think I Was? is a participatory arts and heritage project led by Head4Arts and supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
During the project community groups from across the South East Wales Valleys region used collections held in Gwent and Glamorgan Archives to explore First World War history from a personal perspective.
Inspired by this primary resource material, participants imagined how their lives might have been affected by the conflict if they had been alive a hundred years ago.
Working alongside professional artists, each group has interpreted their research through an art form of their choice, including craft, creative writing, visual arts, drama and film.
All of the creative research collected has been uploaded to this site. We hope that the website will help you find out more about First World War history and will enable you to imagine what your life may have been like during this era.
