    The Yorkshire Film Archive is housed at the York St. John's University. The project seeks to preserve all moving images made in or about Yorkshire with a collection of over 50,000 titles dating from the 1890s to modern day. At the moment, there is about 80 hours worth of film available online. The rest of the collection can be viewed in person, provided that you schedule an appointment in advance. 

    What to Know:

    • The search feature is quite good. I particularly like that you can search by theme. 
    • The 80 hours of content online provides an excellent teaching resource to provide a local perspective to often national surveys. 

    About Jonathan

    I am currently an Adjunct Professor of History at Lynchburg College in Virginia. I received my PhD in Modern British History from Florida State University in 2016. My research explores the way in which competing definitions of masculinity influenced army reform in the mid-nineteenth century. Civilians called for moral reforms; however, they were constantly hampered by politician and military officials' financial concerns. This work offers a number of interventions in the current historiography by exploring issues of corporal punishment, soldiers' sexuality, military suicide, and soldiers' families.
