WITH the centenary of the First World War upon us Glamorgan Archives have a wide range of documents held at their facility for people to view.

These include items such as school log books, hospital records, letters, diaries, photographs, council minutes and much more. Together, these records detail the impact of the war on the home front and the effect it had upon the everyday lives of the ordinary people of Glamorgan.

If you wanted to discover more about the war and view these incredible pieces of history you can visit the archives.

Glamorgan Archives will be running a blog with all the information gathered from documents they hold, which has been transcribed by volunteers over the past 18 months which you can access online. Visit http://glamarchives.wordpress.com.
