Voices of War: UCL in WWI

The Institute of Archaeology’s new student exhibition, Voices of War: UCL in WWI, opens to the public from 6 May 2014.

The temporary exhibition created by MA Museum Studies students at the Institute will be displayed in the A.G. Leventis Gallery of Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology for the next year.

What was the involvement of UCL students and alumni in the First World War?

This exhibition, highlighted by personal stories and artefacts, tells not only of UCL boys fighting in the trenches but also demonstrates the effect the war had on UCL at home.

The exhibition focuses on seven individuals from UCL from the arts, politics, science, archaeology, protest and poetry and will illustrate their diverse experiences from 1914-1918. Voices of War will convey their personal opinions and attitudes towards the war and their interactions with, or against, the war effort.

The exhibition is linked to War Transformed, an event being hosted at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre on 7 May, which questions whether war has gone beyond a human scale and whether we should limit the innovations driven by war.
