Transactions of the Cardiganshire Antiquarian Society and archaeological Record - Volume 1

Transactions of the Cardiganshire Antiquarian Society

The Transactions were published in approximately 14 volumes between 1909 and 1939. The complete contents are being digitised by NLW as part of the JISC-funded ‘Welsh Periodicals Online’ project and should be available during 2009. In the meantime we present the table of contents of each volume below. The format and level of detail in the ‘Contents’ varied from volume to volume. We present the lists as originally printed, with administrative entries (annual accounts etc.) removed.
