Thanks so much for this! I'm very interested in Welsh language and culture, so this is a goldmine!

(I want to give a shout out to my dawgs in Llandrindod Wells! Prince Llewelyn, you are my homie and I will mourn you until I join you.)

And it keeps getting better. They've digitised the whole run of Y Brython, a 19th century Welsh language magazine, just to see how much work it would entail. They're intending to digitise "the whole of the Library's collection of pre-1900 Welsh and Wales-related periodicals on preservation microfilm".

This is good.
