This exhibition will focus on the impact and legacy of the First World War on the local area, set within a national and international context.
Key themes will be explored through original sources and artefacts. This is the first exhibition planned as part of the Mid-Antrim Museums Service ‘On the Brink: The Politics of Conflict 1914-1916’ project, in partnership with Causeway Museum Service. This project will explore, through heritage sites, artefacts of the period, and engagement with local communities, the impact and legacy of the outbreak of the First World War, the Battle of the Somme and the Easter Rising in the Mid and East Antrim and Causeway areas.
