Archives and Manuscripts

'Wales' Edward Thomas, 1905

The main University Library research archives date from the founding of the University in the 19th Century, but there are individual manuscripts which date back to the 14th or 15th centuries.

Amongst our foremost archives are those of the writer and poet Edward Thomas (1878-1917), the newspaper magnate from Cardiff, Hugh Cudlipp (Lord Cudlipp of Aldingbourne, 1913-1988), our archives related to 20th century evidence based health care, and the many personal papers of previous academics of the University.
