Source research

In this workshop, participants compile their own personal dossier of a fallen soldier from the Battle of Passchendaele. Using a photo, name and date of death, they carry out their own source research.


The files from this workshop come from our ‘Passchendaele Archives‘ project, with which we try to give a face and tell the story of the many names on the cemeteries and monuments. After their research, participants can look up ‘their’ soldier during the guided visit to CWGC Tyne Cot Cemetery. There, with their information, they can take on the role of guide and report back.
