Gorffennol is the Welsh word for ‘past’, and is the name of the online student journal of the History Department at Swansea University. It is run by an editorial team consisting of nine students and one member of staff from the Department, producing a yearly journal as well as ad hoc blog posts.

The student-led online journal will be published annually, showcasing articles from postgraduate historians as well as outstanding student assignments from the medieval, early modern, and modern periods. This journal will not only display excellent post- and undergraduate work, but also help our students increase their employability by providing them with editorial experience.

Regular blog posts by students and staff will include short articles on historical topics, module-specific research, and posts showing students’ experiences of modules in our Department.

The editorial team are being guided by Dr Charlie Rozier as supporting lecturer and Amy Megson as Chief Editor.
