Eyam Museum in Derbyshire intends to put on a World War I exhibition thanks to a £21,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
News website ThisisDerbyshire.co.uk reports the exhibition will open in March 2014. As well as the centenary of World War I, Eyam will also be commemorating the 350th anniversary of the arrival of the bubonic plague in the village.
Villagers sacrificed their lives at that time to contain the outbreak within the village.
Vanessa Harbar, head of the Heritage Lottery Fund East Midlands, said: ‘This is a wonderful and intriguing project that serves to commemorate the impact of the First World War on Eyam and its residents.’
