We’ve had another great week at the Archive. We’ve added 214,328 pages and now have over 22 million pages of historical newspapers for you to explore. We have 7 brand new titles this week, and have added to 13 existing titles. This past week we’ve added papers for England, Wales and Ireland.
Joining the Archive this week we have papers for London, Kent, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire in England; Antrim in Ireland, and Cardiganshire in Wales.
The first years of The Cardigan & Tivy-Side Advertiser which we are bringing to the Archive include years when the paper was published by the widow of the former proprietor. Jane Thomas ran the newspaper from 1873 until her death in 1885.

This week we are delighted to have added material from 2000-2007 for The Stage. Founded in the 1880s The Stage is the single best source for the history of theatre and cinema in the UK. Through its pages it is possible to follow the careers of some of our best known actors from their earliest forays to their final appearances.
We have also been busy to adding to some of our county titles for Scotland, England and Ireland. The West Sussex County Times, which we first added to the Archive in February, has had a particularly significant boost with over 55 years added. Our holdings for this title now include years up to 1957.
