Click on the image above to visit the Times Digital Archive 1785-1985 or visit via Databases A-Z in Primo

Here’s some searches to try, with examples of results

Bowes-Lyon AND Wedding (results limited to 1923)

Hints and tips

- Use an asterisk * for truncation e.g. inform* will find informs, informed, information etc
- Scroll to the end of the page you are viewing to find email and print options
- Be ready to broaden and narrow your search terms a few times; sometimes events we know by a particular name or phrase may not have been reported as such when they occurred so use other information you may know such as dates, locations and people

If you are working off campus (campus includes halls) remember to sign into Primo before visiting the Times Digital Archive 1785-1985, to ensure you are authenticated.

Aberystwyth University also subscribes to Nexis which includes The Times (search and view full text) from July 1985 to present – and no paywall!
