Case Study: S.O. Davies and Workplace Compensation

This case study is the result of partnership work between Glamorgan Archives and the Parliamentary Archives. It formed part of the De Montfort project, which took place in 2015 as part of Parliament's wider 2015 Parliament in the Making programme.

The De Montfort project explored the life and impact of  MPs and Peers on both their local area and at Parliament. In this case project participants spent time conducting both independent and group-based archival research at both Glamorgan Archives and the Parliamentary Archives. This enabled them to gain experience in, and build confidence of,  working with archive records.
