The digital content provided by the NLW to the project offers a text-based and visual record of the Welsh landscape, its people and society from the 18th century through to the late 20th century. The text-based material will provide researchers with fully searchable access to five important 19th century Welsh periodicals – Y Traethodydd, Archaelogia Cambrensis, Yr Haul, Y Diwygiwr and Y Greal. These periodicals, which span the latter half of the 19th century, offer a broad overview of Welsh history and society during this period. Encompassing the radical dissenting politics of Y Diwygiwr, the conservative, established church orientated Yr Haul, and the Welsh Baptist Y Greal, these periodicals will give the researcher the opportunity to follow the key debates and events of late 19th century Welsh history from a variety of contemporary political and religious perspectives. In addition, the researcher will also be able to access the broad range of essays included in Y Traethodydd, a key 19th century periodical that covered subjects ranging from religion and politics to literature and philosophy, as well as the early historical research and theory contained in Archaelogia Cambrensis. Combined, these periodicals provide an important record of Welsh society, religion and politics during a particularly turbulent period in the nation’s history.
