Archaeologia Cambrensis

The Journal of the Cambrian Archaeological Association

The Association was founded in 1846 and published the first volume of Archaeologia Cambrensis in that year. In the Preface the editors hoped ‘that we have struck a chord in the hearts of Welsh antiquaries … and that by describing and illustrating the antiquities of our dear native land, we shall meet with the lasting support and sympathy of all’. These sentiments are still held today, more than 160 years later.
