It’s been another busy week of digitising and publishing at the British Newspaper Archive. We’ve added 115,568 pages including seven brand new titles, and made further additions to five existing newspapers.
Brand New Titles
Making their debut this week are historical local papers from London, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and North Yorkshire. Plus, our focus on women’s history continues with the addition of three publications that broadly cover the topics of suffrage, socialism and female issues of the late nineteenth century.
|Bexley Heath and Bexley Observer||1875-1877, 1879, 1889, 1895, 1903|
|Cambridgeshire Times||1874, 1877-1879, 1889|
|Craven Herald||1876-1877, 1879, 1889, 1897|
|Dereham and Fakenham Times||1889|
|International Woman Suffrage News||1913-1945|
As well as adding our brand new papers, we’ve continued to develop some of our existing ones with additional coverage. Notably, you can now explore what life was like in 1980’s Newcastle with new pages added to Newcastle Evening Chronicle for the entire decade.
|Carluke and Lanark Gazette||1914|
|Mid-Ulster Mail||1915-1916, 1918|
|Newbury Weekly News and General Advertiser||1873|
|Newcastle Evening Chronicle||1980-1989|
With new pages added each and every week, it’s useful to check back in with the Archive regularly to see if your paper-of-interest has been added or supplemented. Plus, don’t forget, you can also play a part in what newspaper we digitise next.
