The Swansea History Journal - Minerva

The RI's history journal was launched as Minerva in 1993, and that is still its subtitle. From 1995 it was MinervaSwansea's Local History Journal. In 1999 it changed to Minerva – The Journal of Swansea History. And in 2007/08 it became The Swansea History Journal – Minerva !

Through all these name-changes the quality of the content has not faltered, and with 23 issues to its name it is now a treasury of local history – run your eye over the contents listed below. There are indexes for preceding editions in Volumes 5 and 10, and a people index for the whole run in the Digital Library section on this website.

Apart from the articles below, there are plenty of pieces on things acquired by and for Swansea Museum, book reviews, brief biographies of contributors, reports on RI and museum activities.

Other RI publications in print are:

“History of Swansea and the Lordship of Gower”, Volume II by W.H.Jones

“The Remarkable James Livingstone”, by David Farmer & Brian Lile

“Keeping Welsh Heritage Alive: History, Heritage & Regeneration in Swansea”, edited by Huw Bowen, Graham Humphrys & Michael Williams
