Cardiff (Caerdydd in Welsh) is the capital of Wales and one of the most vibrant cities in the UK. Its roots go back to pre-Roman eras, with the occasional cromlech scattered around the region. Today Cardiff is the home of the National Assembly for Wales, the finance and business centre for the region, the Welsh media, and a hub for research, arts, sport, and culture. It is also home to one of the most beautiful civic centres in Europe.
Across south Wales, the cities of Swansea and Newport hold a wealth of historical resources, and the South Wales Valleys are now a vivid mix or urban and natural environment.
This handbook describes the major collections of libraries, archives, and museums where you can research culture, art, and design. It will allow you to explore these cities and direct you to the most appropriate places to suit your research needs.
Special features include:
• a city-wide map
• at-a-glance navigation icons
• a time-saving subject index to collections
• a glimpse into each site with full-colour images
