Copper Archaeology and Sites

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (Comisiwn Brenhinol Henebion Cymru) has pioneered the safeguarding and recording of sites of the copper industry for over thirty years. As a partner of the Global and Local Worlds of Welsh Copper Project, RCAHMW has digitised almost a hundred extra slides and photographs of historic copper buildings and sites.

Most of these can be found on the National Monuments Record of Wales' online database Coflein.
