A free exhibition to commemorate Oxford during the First World War. Touring to five venues between November 2018 and July 2019:
Somerville College, Oxford – 1 to 29 November 2018 (weekdays 2.00-5.30pm, Saturdays 9.30-11.30am)
The Rumble Museum, Cheney School, Headington – 1 to 20 December 2018
Cowley Library, Oxford – 22 December 2018 to 30 January 2019
Westgate Library, Oxford – 1 to 28 February 2019
The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum, Woodstock – 19 March to 31 July 2019

While some citizens left Oxford and travelled to other countries during the First World War, others stayed behind and
experienced the city’s increasingly international connections; individuals from across the UK and the world joined them here because of the conflict. All these people were involved in, and contributed to, the war in different ways, and twelve of them are commemorated in this exhibition which highlights the wartime experiences of men and women, be they ‘town’, ‘gown’, or from overseas. By focussing on individual stories the exhibition emphasises Oxford’s international connections during the First World War and helps to expand understanding of different types of war experiences beyond the trenches.
