Scotland’s First World War Sites

Banner Canmore

The digital collection Scotland’s First World War Sites is part of the subdomain Canmore of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS). At Canmore this selection points to nearly 1,200 locations in Scotland with for each a varying quantity of images. The results are accessible in two sets; each of them can be visualized in a map. The results bring you also to items in the RCAHMS catalogues such as prints, drawings and manuscripts. You can also search in the Canmore database for specific subjects such as training trenches, airfields and hospitals. There is an advanced search mode and three thesauri for systematic research into monuments, objects and maritime items.

With the First World War Audit the RCAHMS has created a digital gallery with a preview of scores of images, both photographs and maps. The RCAHMS provides also an overview of its First World war resources.
