To mark Remembrance Day, the National Army Museum and Commonwealth War Graves Commission bring you a weekend of virtual talks.
Learn about the ideas and decisions that led to the creation of a remembrance culture, following the end of the First World War. Discover how the war dead were recovered and identified, and hear about the ongoing work to identify the bodies found on battle sites.
There will be discussions on the role of heritage in acts of remembrance, how commemoration has evolved since 1918 and where it is heading as we look towards the future.
The programme will take place online via Crowdcast. Follow the links to each talk to book your place.
