Welcome to the Gallipoli Association
NEW GALLIPOLI CENTENARY EDUCATION WEBSITE
As the Gallipoli Centenary begins, we are delighted to announce the launch of the newwebsite for the Gallipoli Centenary Education Project: www.gallipoli100education.org.uk. We have been trialling a draft version of the site for a few weeks and are now ready to ‘open for business’ with the new version.
The purpose of the site is to help teachers with their Gallipoli projects, so this is not so much an historical site as an educational one, so the information is intended to raise questions rather than supply answers.
THE CENTENARY ISSUE OF ‘THE GALLIPOLIAN’
The Spring 2015 issue of The Gallipolian (No. 137) will be published in mid-April and commemorates centenary of the landings at Helles and Anzac.
The issue contains articles by a number of eminent historians, including John Lee, Christopher Pugsley, Peter Hart, Prof Peter Stanley, Brigadier Chris Roberts ... and many more articles on the landings and commemorations.
