What is Sea Your History?

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded the Royal Naval Museum funding to develop a website focusing on the history of the Royal Navy during the 20th century. The Sea Your History project will run until November 2008.

During the course of the project, the project team of eight will

  • Select 15,000 items for digitisation

  • Prepare online exhibitions exploring key four themes

  • Collect 90 new oral history recordings and make them available via the website

  • Develop three on-site education projects

  • Create a new showcase exhibition at the Royal Naval Museum

  • Make the Royal Naval Museum's collections catalogue available online


Working in partnership

The idea for the project came originally from the Royal Naval Museum who successfully applied for funding and manage the project team, but Sea Your History is a partnership project and the project's supporting partners are central to the project's success.

The project would like to formally thank all of its supporting partners for their support and contribution to the project:

  • Royal Naval Museum

  • Fleet Air Arm Museum

  • The Royal Marines Museum

  • Royal Navy Submarines Museum

  • Portsmouth Royal Dockyard Historic Trust

  • Royal Navy's Fleet Photographic Unit (East)

  • The Mary Rose Trust


The project team

Sea Your History project team consists of 8 people:

The Project Manager is responsible for the long-term planning and day-to-day management of the project team.
The IT Officer provides the technical solutions for the project and has also been responsible for putting the Royal Naval Museum's Collections catalogue on-line.
The Oral Historian is collecting 90 new oral history interviews, selecting extracts and making them all available on the website
Four Researchers are working with the Museum collections at the Royal Naval Museum. They are selecting items for digitisation, researching and preparing text for the web. All four Researchers also work with the project's partners researching and selecting items from their collections to appear on the website.
The Documentation Assistant has been working to ensure that all of the records in the Royal Naval Museum's Collections catalogue are accurate and ready to be made available online.

The website was designed and developed by Atticmedia using Joomla!
