Meilyr Powel is in his final year of studying for a doctorate at Swansea University's History Department, funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol. His research examines the Welsh press during the First World War, and the various meanings attributed to the war by the press. The research contributes to our knowledge and understanding of Wales' experience during the Great War by viewing the press as a key part of civic society. By studying and analysing its content, ways of understanding the essence of the Welsh experience of the First World War are put forward, drawing attention to the key features of the culture of war in Wales.
