New 'History' Section added.

We have just added a new 'History' Section to the website.  A carousel of images charts the development of early timber barrier constructions in 1922, to barricade structures erected around Belfast in 1969, to the construction of initial 'Peacelines' of barbed wire, and the later addition, replacement and construction of structures that we see today.  All of the images are tagged with an information panel, which you can access by clicking on the small 'i' icon on the top right hand corner of each image, which reveals more information of location, type, and when the photographs were taken.

Thank you to all of the contributers to this section, including photographers who have donated images, twitter followers for clarifications and locational assistance, and the AHRC for funding some of my time on this.
