The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales

The Royal Commission is the investigation body and national archive for the historic environment of Wales. It has the lead role in ensuring that Wales’s archaeological, built and maritime heritage is authoritatively recorded, and seeks to promote the understanding and appreciation of this heritage nationally and internationally.


Coflein is the online database for the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW). The Society is able to receive and add new records to Coflein. Click on this link for a pro-forma which can be printed out and which lists the type of information which is valuable in compiling a site record. Records and photographs may be posted to RCAHMW, Ffordd Penglais, Aberystwyth SY23 3BU, or sent by email to John Crompton at carol . john@ (close up the spaces to use this address).

The Mills Archive

The Mills Archive was established in 2002 as a permanent repository for historical and contemporary material on traditional mills and milling, and to make that material available for public inspection and use in research and learning. It has rescued over 1 million documents and images that might otherwise have ended up in a landfill site.
