  Archwilio
Archwilio is the online access system to the Historic Environment Records (HERs) of Wales. The system has been developed through a partnership of the four Welsh Archaeological Trusts to provide wider public access to this valuable resource.
The four regional historic environment records compiled and maintained by the four Welsh Archaeological Trusts (WATs) aim to provide a comprehensive catalogue of archaeological and historical sites and finds of all periods throughout Wales. They offer a unique opportunity to investigate the heritage of Wales. Currently, about 100,000 individual entries are held by the four regional records, which are continually up-dated and expanded as new information becomes available. The HERs fulfil a wide variety of functions including assisting in the positive management and presentation of the historic landscape, planning control, and as a source for input to local history, conservation and tourism projects.

The HER covers all aspects of human activity in the landscape from early prehistory to the twentieth century without prejudice. Details of well- and lesser-known sites can be found, in addition to records generated by archaeological projects undertaken in the area. If you are interested in researching your local area, or finding out more about a particular historical period, this is a good place to start.

  GeoMôn
GeoMôn was set up as a major project to establish Anglesey as an international 'Geopark'.
The Isle of Anglesey has a unique and internationally important geo-heritage. Arguably, it has the greatest geodiversity for its size of anywhere in Europe, possessing rock formations from most of the major geological eras. Its Precambrian rocks extend back beyond 600 million years ago and contain the first evidence of life in Welsh rocks. Indeed, the rocks of Wales are as varied as the landscape they produce, and our small country has few rivals anywhere in the world with as rich a geological heritage or geodiversity. It was to Wales that many of the pioneering geologists came. Here, they named some of the divisions that define the international geological timescale - for example, the Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian periods, the last two named after Celtic tribes.

  Institute for the study of Welsh estates
The Institute for the Study of Welsh Estates (ISWE) is dedicated to promoting research into the history, impact and functioning of estates on a Wales-wide basis.

For centuries, estates have formed an important part of Welsh life. It was here that much of the social, cultural, political, economic and industrial fabric of the communities of Wales was stitched together. Their impacts on the history and landscapes of the nation have been profound, potentially unparalleled.

ISWE seeks to advance outstanding research into the subject and ensure that the knowledge we generate regarding Wales’ past is accessible and contributes constructively to its future.
