Wales in a website launches at Eisteddfod

Capturing a nation in one website is no easy task, but that is exactly what has been done with People’s Collection Wales / Casgliad y Werin Cymru, a brand new site that uses pioneering technology to tell the story of Wales through the eyes of its people.

The People’s Collection Wales is a contemporary, interactive and bilingual online experience dedicated to the history of Wales and its people. It is a rich cultural and social treasure trove that charts the human story of Wales with an archive of reminiscences, photographs, video and audio for future generations.

The site brings the story to life using GPS technology that allows the viewer to travel over the landscape of Wales and travel back and forth in time, while viewing artefacts in 3D. And the free site will build over time as contributions create people’s own personal collections.
