Llansamlet Historical Society – Sharing Llansamlet’s Past

The Llansamlet Historical Society project ‘Sharing Llansamlet’s Past’ has cataloged and digitised the group’s extensive archive of photographs and documents.

The project archive is available online and outputs are available to anyone interested in the community history of Llansamlet.

Project Summary:

The project team are recording the memories of Llansamlet residents who have a story to tell about the area and its people, sharing this archive with the wider community through deposits in West Glamorgan Archive Service and the People’s Collection Wales.

School packs have also been designed and shared with local schools, including DVDs and CDs to enhance local curriculums.
