Course Description

In recent years, local history groups have flourished in our communities. This course offers the guidance and support of professional historians for such interests. Although it focuses upon the specific local history of South West Wales, it will also draw upon a general awareness of historical trends and a detailed working knowledge of Welsh history. While the course concentrates upon the fostering of skills and techniques relevant to the study of local history, and the application of those skills in pursuing specific studies based on SouthWest Wales, the methodolog y can be applied to the study of other regions and localities. The practical research element will familiarise students with research strategies and resources and will encourage students to under take their own individual original research based upon their personal interests. Successful presentations could be considered for publication in relevant local history journals or as monographs. The course offers focused support in practical research skills and techniques and detailed analysis of primary material, much of it untapped, which exists in both Welsh and English. Students will be able to make use of the excellent facilities available in local county libraries and record offices.
