Historic European traveller writings in Wales

The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (https://rcahmw.gov.uk/) has partnered with Bangor University and the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) to create a digital resource to showcase 18th and 19th century travel writings of European travellers to Wales, and to use these to permit ‘virtual visits’. This new project builds on the recent uncovering of 400 accounts of visits to Wales by European travellers between 1750 and 2010, as part of an earlier research project.

According to the announcement, many of the featured texts to be made available are in French and German, , with additonal accounts from travellers from Poland, Hungary, Scandinavia and the Czech Republic.
