Tutor: Peter Street

In the centennial year of the unveiling of the Cenotaph the course considers initially how (and which) war dead had been remembered in the past and why remembrance of those who had died in the Great War were treated differently – both during the conflict itself and its aftermath. Aspects which feature include street shrines, the annual observance of 4 August and the decision not to repatriate the dead together with the emergence of the (then) Imperial War Graves Commission. Also considered is the background to the Great Silence, the Unknown Warrior and Festival of Remembrance and (battlefield) pilgrimages.
