About Us

PortCities consortium

PortCities Southampton is part of the PortCities consortium, a group of maritime sites from across the UK. PortCities is made up of UK museums, archives and libraries who have come together to open up access to their collections of images, sound and other objects by making them available on the internet. The PortCities websites draw on these digitised materials to engage people in the collections and to unearth stories of the people, places and events that lie underneath.

PortCities is made possible by a grant from the New Opportunities Fund (NOF). NOF distributes National Lottery money to health, education and environment projects across the UK. NOFs 50 million pound EnrichUK  programme enables information that supports learning opportunities to be put into digitised form. Grant winners, like PortCities Southampton, are developing learning materials covering a wide range of topics to promote lifelong learning.

The other PortCities sites are in BristolHartlepoolLiverpool and London.
