Sources for Courses: Bomb Sight

Bomb Sight is a website that transforms records previously only available in The National Archives into an interactive format, granting far greater accessibility to this important historical information. These WW2 bomb census maps from between 7/10/1940 and 06/06/1941 were previously available only in the Reading Room of The National Archives.

The website presents you with a map detailing the locations of specific bombs, and gives information regarding the bomb type and the location in which it fell.
