A Century of Stories is a Heritage Lottery funded project which explores the social history surrounding the individual and shared legacy of the First World War.
It will run from 2014 to 2018 and focus on how the deep-rooted social, cultural, community and individual consequences of the conflict still resonate in our society today. With professional research support, the project will empower local people to discover their own personal connection to the conflict and uncover how all of our stories combine to create the diverse and unique history of Leicestershire in the First World War.
