Objects are the way in which we can touch the past, and they play a living role in history today.

Through them, we can understand the experience of men and women during the First World War.

Surviving objects from the Great War are diverse: posters and ephemera, personal mementos and military artefacts, archaeological finds and public monuments, deadly weapons and tanks, aircraft and ships.

These objects, some of which have never before seen the light of day, bring a fresh perspective to the tragedy and triumph of the 'war to end all wars' across the world.
