The Cynon Valley History Society was founded in Aberdare
in 1971. Our objects are to promote, encourage and maintain an active interest in the
history of the district in all its aspects; to arrange talks and lectures; to undertake
original research and assist in the collection of local material such as manuscripts,
books, artefacts and photographs, and to publish titles on local history.
The Society presents a programme of 10 lectures each
season and publishes a quarterly newsletter HANES (The Welsh word for History).
