The documents give an insight into living and working conditions in south Wales as the time when Chartism was at its height. (Transcribed by Ian Winstanley for the Coal Mining History Resource Centre. Ian edited these reports into more modern language, around 20 years ago, based on facsimiles of the originals in book form in the University of Dublin library. The originals had been held at the National Archives but were sold in the 1980s.)
