We carry out research across a long timespan, from Iron Age Wales to the contemporary Muslim world, and we deal with topics as diverse as the commemoration of the dead in the middle ages, Atlantic slavery and the history of seaside resorts.
Archif Menywod Cymru/Women’s Archive of Wales promotes the recognition of women in Welsh history and the preservation of sources of women’s history in Wales. It was founded in 1997 as a result of research by Ursula Masson and Avril Rolph at the then University of Glamorgan (now USW/PDC), into the history of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Their work demonstrated the need to collect and preserve the records of women’s history. AMC/WAW has a long and valued association with the Centre and has generously sponsored the annual Ursula Masson Memorial lecture since its inception.
