Great War: Unknown War

Welcome to the Great War: Unknown War project website.  

November 2018 will herald one hundred years since the end of World War One, otherwise known as the Great War. The University of Southampton will mark this significant centenary through its Great War: Unknown War programme, launching in June 2017.

Events will include exhibitions, concerts, study days, a film month and lecture series which will run from June 17 - November 18. Our aim is to explore a wide variety of topics and subject matter, therefore you will find events relating to history & politics, archaeology, music, religion, literature and art. 

Events will be held at the University of Southampton, and are open to all. Most events are free to attend, please use the tabs above to find details about specific events.

This follows on from our successful Great War: Unknown War 2014-15 programme which marked the centenary of the start of the Great War. Please browse our GWUW 14-15 events and activities using our archive pages.
