Living Legacies 1914-18 Digital Centenaries Festival

About this project

To mark the centenary of World War One the project was invited by Queen’s University Belfast with funding from AHRC to exhibit filmed research of World War One content. The work was exhibited at the event and the film is now archived as part of the centenary in the Public Records Offices of Northern Ireland.


Digital Centenaries - Belfast, Titanic Quarter marks the digital achievements of the Centenary over the last five years. The Project of Deborah the First World War Tank was exhibited at the AHRC funded event in Belfast. The 4K film commemorates the legacy of the Battle of Cambrai and the discovery of a unique nearly entire WW1 Mark IV tank using digital technologies. Working with communities in the UK and France, the Royal Tank Regiment and the department of tourism in Cambrai, France, the story of this unique machine and the names and families of the crew have been archived for future generations at PRONI in Belfast, in France, and various UK museums using digital film.
