British & Irish Newspapers
This week we have added 98,602 brand new pages to The Archive. We have updates to eleven of our existing titles – spanning 134 years between 1865 and 1999, and covering towns and cities across England and Northern Ireland. You can find extensive updates this week to Yorkshire title the Huddersfield Daily Examiner, with over 12,000 new pages added, which include the years between 1885 and 1909. We have additions to other regional titles as well, covering the south of England (Crawley and London), the Midlands (Coventry), as well as the north of the country (Liverpool). We are excited to welcome further updates to one of our specialist publications – Field – for which we now have editions up to 1911. Field is a newspaper dedicated to country pursuits, and is a unique window into the world of the Victorian country gentleman.
