Raids Over York is a collaborative heritage project that commemorates the 80th anniversaries of the 11 air raids over York during the Second World War (1939-45) through new research, interactive media, and a series of public, celebratory events.  The principle aim of Raids Over York is to better understand the specific sites in York that were constructed to protect the people of the city, such as air-raid shelters and anti-aircraft batteries, as well as buildings that were targeted and damaged in the raids - and to work with York's communities to identify, record and celebrate remaining WW2 structures in York. The Raids Over York partners are: York Civic Trust; University of York; Explore York Libraries and Archives; City of York Council; Yorkshire Architectural & York Archaeological Society, and York Oral History Society.
