Welcome to the Glamorgan History Society website.

St Donats Castle by Thomas Hornor

For more than fifty years, the Glamorgan History Society has played a prominent and highly respected role in encouraging the study of the history of Glamorgan in all its many aspects.

Every year we publish our journal, Morgannwg, which brings together expertise from academics and local historians alike. We welcome original, well-written articles, and the journal provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to publish their work and bring it to the attention of a wider readership.

Glamorgan County Flag
Glamorgan flagThe Glamorgan History Society was instrumental in securing the registration of a flag for the historic county of Glamorgan. In collaboration with the Association of British Counties and the Historic Counties Trust, a successful approach was made to the Flag Institute who have registered the proposed design. The design was also supported by a number of other historical societies in Glamorgan. The origins of the design form the subject of an article in the 2013 edition of Morgannwg.
