Hello and welcome to our website!
We are going to be investigating the change and advancement in technology and weaponry during the First World War. We will be investigating who made the advancements, when they were made, who they affected and why it was significant.
Here is our research plan including our research question and sub-questions:
How did trench warfare spark inventions and innovations in weaponry from the beginning of the first world war till the end?
- What were the main weapons used by different countries at the beginning of the war?
- What kind of weapons were developed during the war, when and by who?
- What new weapons were invented and pioneered during the war, when and by who?
- What effects did these newly created and developed weapon have on the war?
We are also going to be looking into how the advancements were portrayed in poems and letters from poems. This is because this project is a part of an IDU (Interdisciplinary Unit), including the subjects of History and English. The History part is going to be investigating the change in weaponry and the consequences of these advancements and the English part is going to be looking into how the weaponry and technology was portrayed in language.
