Natalia has been published annually in Pietermaritzburg by the Natal Society since 1971. The journal publishes articles on the history (in the broadest sense) of KwaZulu Natal and continues to hold true to the early vision of the Natal Society when, in 1865, it stated its purpose as:

"The acquisition and preservation of information of local value and interest, and the general encouragement of habits of study, investigation and research".

The first editor of Natalia was historian and Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University of Natal, Professor Colin Webb.

The Natalia Editorial Committee includes established historians and writers who have published a wide variety of books, papers and articles on the history, languages, cultural traditions, buildings, geography, natural history and environmental conservation of the Province.
