Subject: NEW: Wilfred Owen Multimedia Digital Archive (fwd)

The final deliverable of the JTAP 'Virtual Seminars for Teaching
Literature Project' is now available! Please take a look at:


The Wilfred Owen Multimedia Digital Archive


This archive contains: digital facsimiles of all of the war poetry of
Wilfred Owen; a selection of his letters and photographs; and his
personal records held at the UK's PRO. In addition, the
archive is aimed at teachers of the history of World War One as it also

c.50 Video Clips from the 1916 films 'The Battle of the Somme' and 'The
Battle of the Ancre: The Advance of the Tanks' (QuickTime and MPEG)
100 Audio Clips from interviews with veterans from the Great War [needs a
RealAudio Player]
250 Photographs of the Western Front (1914-1918)
250 Modern Photographs of the Western Front
c.30 Modern Video Clips of the Western Front

We would also like to point users to the innovative 'Path Creation Scheme'
which allows lecturers/students etc. to create personalised annotated
paths through the archive. This was developed by Chris Stephens and
is available from the main archive page.

New users may like to look at the existing four on-line tutorials which
have been available since October 1997 to teach WW1 poetry. In addition
there is a complete run of the journal 'The Hydra' produced at the
Craglockhart War Memorial hospital.

We look forward to your comments,

Stuart Lee, Project Manager
Paul Groves, Project Officer
