This paper describes a web based local history project in East London. The project is called 'the Newham Story' (http://www.newhamstory.com/) and it aims to capture the history of the borough through the use of both formal, and informal user generated content.
The technical application is the Drupal open source content management system. This is a modular application and we are using and experimenting with various taxonomy tools.
