|Activities:||RCAHMW, founded in 1908, is the national Welsh body of archaeological and architectural survey and record. It maintains the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW),a national public archive, database and information service. NMRW holds over a million photographs (both ground and air), drawings, maps, published works and manuscript material relating to sites from the earliest prehistoric periods to the most recent industrial landscapes. The information is made available via the free public online database -Coflein, which combines information about archaeological sites and buildings of all periods, with catalogue information about the NMRW archive collections.|
|Connections with mining history:||RCAHMW is concerned with the recording of all archaeological sites, buildings and historic landscapes, including those associated with mining. Records resulting from this work, together with records from many other organisations and individuals, are deposited in the NMRW and are available for public consultation. The NMRW is pleased to receive gifts or deposits of suitable material to enhance the collections.|
|Additional information:||The public information service may be accessed in person by visiting the NMRW search room at Plas Crug (open each weekday from 9.30 to 16.00); please note that a prior appointment is advisable. The service can also be accessed remotely by post, telephone, fax, internet site, or email. No charge, other than for copies of material (price list on request), is made for this service.
Further information, including current projects, publications in print and the RCAHMW's newsletter Cofrod, is available on the website. Alternatively please contact NMRW Reader Services at the above address.
