1916 1916: A Year That Shaped Ireland, examines the impact that the events of 1916, including the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme, had on Ireland. Beginning with an examination of what was happening in the country at that time, including the Home Rule crisis of 1912 and the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, the resource takes an in-depth look at how the Dublin uprising and the battle on the Western Front impacted on lives at home and forever changed the social and political landscape of the island. 

Repurposed from the Nerve Centre’s award winning interactive Symbols CD-Rom experience, this rich content is redesigned for the modern era with interactive images, audio from a range of academics and historians, video content from the time, engaging quiz sections and suggested learning activities for use in the classroom. 

This book has been developed in conjunction with the Nerve Centre’s Creative Centenaries and Teaching Divided Histories projects.
