Opinion: “The First World War centenary has been a lost opportunity”
By Professor Maggie Andrews
The events marking the centenary of the First World War over the last four years have seen considerable financial investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) the Arts Council and the government. Numerous art works, books, films, and TV and radio programmes have been produced. In London, the Imperial War Museum revamped its First World War galleries, and – around the UK – events and exhibitions have taken place, alongside community history projects.
