Welcome to the Glamorgan History Society.
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.

We also maintain a list of websites of local history societies in the area to help you pursue your interests further.
This year's autumn day school is due to take place on Saturday 30 October 2021, once again at Heronston Hotel, Bridgend.
