  • Glamorgan Archives, Leckwith, Cardiff.


    Who Do I Think I Was? is an arts and heritage project led by Head4Arts and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

    During the project, community groups from the South East Wales Valleys region visited Glamorgan Archives and Gwent Archives to explore First World War history and then worked with artists to imagine how their lives might have been affected by the conflict had they been alive 100 years ago.

    Come and see the exhibition created by the participants!
