Seven new papers join The Archive | The British Newspaper Archive Blog


Hot off the Press – new titles added this week

This week we added 83,018 pages to The Archive.  We have added seven brand new titles and additional years to over twenty existing titles.  We have added new issues to newspapers from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland this week.  Our new titles come from Leicestershire, Oxfordshire and West Yorkshire in England; Armagh in Ireland, and the historic counties of Breconshire and Radnorshire in Wales, which are now in the county of Powys.

Military Register Wednesday 28 June 1815

Alongside our new county papers we have added an important early nineteenth century newspaper to our Military CollectionThe Military Register from 1814 to 1820.  This is an extremely important paper for those interested in the last years of the Napoleonic Wars and the many lesser known conflicts of late Georgian period.  The paper reports on the movement of battalions and military promotionsThe Miltary Register will also be of particular interest to those interested in the relationship between the British Army and the East India Company in the early nineteenth century.
