Punjab Heritage Website
03. Aug 2005 at 18:39
How would you like to have access to almost 100 years of  
illustrated newspaper articles about Punjabis in the Press?  
The United Kingdom Punjab Heritage Association's new website  
http://www.punjabarchive.org brings you closer to that ultimate  
on line reference source.  
The new website has been described by BBC Television's South  
Asia Correspondent, Navdip Dhariwal as "a fascinating window  
into Punjab's history. . . great journalism from the past  
coupled with innovative technology makes punjabarchive.org  
a fascinating, informative and fun experience "  
This is the first step taken to create an electronic web-based  
archive highlighting the extensive body of material relating to  
the Punjab as reported in illustrated and non illustrated  
Victorian newspapers.  
The material graphically illustrates the shared heritage and  
contribution of Punjabis in world history, especially in relation  
to the building of the British Empire in the second half of the  
19th century.  
Nearly all of the newspapers are profusely illustrated with  
evocative woodblock engravings and photographs, and cover a range  
of events and characters, many significant, some curious but  
nearly all little known.  
Highlights of the important events between Punjabi Muslims,  
Hindus and Sikhs with the British include:  
The land and people of the Punjab ruled by Maharaja Ranjit Singh  
The two Anglo-Sikh wars (1845-6, 1848-9) and subsequent  
annexation of the Punjab to British India in 1849  
Maharaja Duleep Singh the first Sikh known to have settled  
in England in 1854.  
The Punjabi contribution to the development of the British Empire  
in military campaigns in Asia, Africa and Europe (1860s - 1900s)  
The largely unheralded role of Punjabis in World War I and II  
The material represented in this website is from a private  
collection. We are grateful to the owner for their permission  
to access their valuable archive.  
The UK Punjab Heritage Association ("UKPHA") is a non-profit  
voluntary organisation based in Greater London. The Association  
was founded in 2001 to foster the appreciation of the Punjabi  
heritage in Britain and encourage the preservation of endangered  
items of the Punjabi material heritage.
