Gwynedd Archaeological Trust

Gwynedd Archaeological Trust

The trust was formed in 1974 to improve the understanding, conservation and promotion of the historic environment within north-west Wales. It covers the whole of the pre-1996 county of Gwynedd, including Anglesey and the western part of what is now Conwy county borough.

Its educational work includes lectures, meetings, field excursions and interpretation of archaeological sites in the landscape. It maintains the regional Historic Environment Record and makes this available to anyone. It also offers advice on management and conservation and on the archaeological implications of development proposals.

More information is available on the trust's website.
