Student curated exhibitions

In 2021, Beverley Art Gallery welcomed students from the University of York's History of Art department on a digital placement. Students from the undergraduate History of Art and Curating course spent several months with the gallery staff and as a result created several online projects based around our collections.

World War I Centenary

The First World War was one of the most significant events of the modern era and its consequences still shape the world we live in today. Between 3 August 1914 and the armistice on 11 November 1918, more than 8 million men and women of Britain and its Empire took part in this war to end all wars. Nearly 1 million of them died and 2 million were wounded.

As well as the effects on individuals who served and their families, the war resulted in major political and geographical changes, including the Russian revolution and the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Turkish empires, drastically re-drawing the map of Europe. In Britain, the war led to the erosion of many social divisions and the extension of the right to vote to millions of women.

Local research and downloads

Through 2018, as part of the Humber Museums Partnership and with funding from the Arts Council, a series of events and exhibitions took place to commemorate the centenary of the First World War.

As part of the Centenary project, East Riding Museums compiled resources and research into the First World War. The downloads below relate to the East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry and East Yorkshire Regiment. They are provided for personal interest only and should not be reproduced without prior permission. Please contact us if you need to reproduce the documents in any way.
