The National Waterfront Museum, under the overall guidance of the National Museum of Wales, allowed us to hold our first post-Covid talk on 18 September. This featured the HA president Professor Peter Mandler, who spoke about ‘The Origins of Mass Society: Speech, Crime, Sex and Drink in Urbanising Britain, 1780–1870’.


At our monthly talks, social distancing and mask rules will be in place and attendance is by booking only.


Our branch journal Chronicle will be available at our next talk. The cost of a copy is:


     For members:              £3 each

Chronicle available available at Swansea Museum on Saturday 25 September 2021. Thanks are given to the Royal Institution of South Wales for allowing us this opportunity to sell our journal at the launch of this year’s Swansea History Journal and to all those who bought a copy.


Our latest publication, The Story of Swansea Castle , is now available and will be on sale at our next talk at the National Waterfront Museum. Take a look at the <Publications> page on this website.
