Archive of the month

July 2016

This month the world remembers the Battle of the Somme which took place between 1 July and 18 November 1916.

It was one of the bloodiest battles in history in which over one million men were wounded or killed.

Here is an image of an original 1916 map of Mametz Wood with notes on the terrain and enemy locations.

The Archives and Special Collections of Bangor University is responsible for the care and storage of the early College Records as well as archival and rare printed material. All of our manuscript collections are bound by one common factor, their relevance to the history, people and topography of North Wales. However, their subject areas are wide ranging and are of national as well as local historical interest.
