Arthurian Collection, incorporating the Flintshire, Harries Collection

Bangor’s excellence and long-standing reputation in Arthurian Studies has been has been built over the last fifty years through the work of leading Arthurian scholars Professor P. J. C. Field, and Professor Raluca Radulescu. Bangor University boasts the only MA in Arthurian Literature in the world, and thus attracts students from countries and continents as diverse as Brazil, Japan, the USA, and Europe.

Flintshire County Libraries kindly donated its Arthurian Collection to Bangor University; where it now is being curated, preserved and managed by the Library and Archives Service.

The collection, which is of major interest to scholars and general readers, was originally donated to Flintshire County Libraries in 1952 by E. R. Harries, a former librarian of the county. Flintshire and Clwyd library services, then added further stock. It now contains over 2,000 items of interest to scholars and general readers alike. This collection enhances Bangor’s existing collection, in particular through the addition of further rare books. Scholars who would have previously had to travel to both Mold and Bangor will now find these resources in the same location.
