Ships and the Sea

The Royal Commission’s collections reflect the long, complex and diverse associations between the Welsh people and seafaring. Before the coming of the railways in the nineteenth century, the movement of people, raw materials, and manufactured goods depended heavily on ships of all types. The collection celebrates the richness of archaeological sites and structures that make up our ‘sea heritage’, which the Royal Commission researches and records to ensure they are valued and safeguarded.
