    Who makes History? This resource, launched in 2014, is dedicated to recording and popularising people’s history, that is, the history of ‘everyday women, men, people of colour, migrants, indigenous people, LGTB people, disabled people, workers, the unemployed, housewives and single mothers, as opposed to the history of rich and powerful individuals, kings, queens and politicians’. The collection of podcasts presented here tell the stories of past struggles which still resonate today. Each episode has a ‘Footnotes’ section, which offers links to relevant resources including short videos, articles written at the time, and websites. Events covered so far are: the Grunwick strike of East African and Asian women workers in London 1976-8; The Angry Brigade, Britain’s first urban guerrilla group; Anti-Nazi youth movements in World War II; Workmates: organising with agency workers on London Underground; Industrial Workers of the World in the US, 1905-1918 and 1918-1950s; The West Virginia mine Wars, 1902-1922; The Vietnam War strike wave; Spanish Civil War; The League of Revolutionary Black Workers in Detroit; Women in the Miners strike; Peterloo massacre with Mike Leigh; Women in the early IWW (Industrial Workers of the World Union).

    This is a unique database of poems written in response to the Lancashire Cotton Famine of 1861-65. Many of the poems are by the mill workers most affected by the famine and are written in the Lancashire dialect. The poems, published by the local newspapers of that time, are presented here with a commentary, audio recitations and musical performances which draw directly from them. This is an ongoing project of special interest for literary scholars and historians. There are some 100 poems collated so far, of which some are of a high quality, according to Dr Simon Rennie. For example, a Work, Lads, and Think by wool sorter Williffe Cunliam. The database can be searched by date, publisher and place of publication.

    This site is the result of a project undertaken by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) about the conscientious objectors of the First World War. It tells the stories of five young people who opposed World War I and, through diary entries, films, and other contextual material (such as contemporary newspaper stories and the transcripts of tribunals) recounts their experiences from the outbreak of war, to the introduction of conscription and the legislation which recognised conscientious objection. The audiovisual material which accompanies the project include plays, documentaries, audio clips and other useful teaching resources.
