Impact: Cultural & Creative Impacts
- Dr Robert James (Participant)
Description of impact
To work with a community group, the University of the Third Age (U3A), to identify the Portsmouth residents who were killed in the battle and measure the effect of those losses on the town. The project has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the University is employing a Research Assistant to work alongside the U3A to establish the numbers of casualties and create a digital and hard-copy map capturing where those casualties lived. A number of community 'drop-in' sessions will be held to capture relatives' stories. A 'Roll of Honour' will tour a number of 'pop-up' exhibitions on the city.
