On 10 March, I had the immense privilege to receive and invitation by Llafur: Welsh People’s History Society to join Prof Nathan Abrams (Bangor University) and Catrin Stevens (Women’s Archive of Wales) top open this year’s spring series of talks. This year, the topic for all talks was on ‘Landscape, Heritage and Tourism. Below is a recording of our three presentations.
My talk focused on examples of German travel writing about visits to Welsh landed estates throughout the nineteenth century. Nathan presented an app for heritage walks he developed around Jewish heritage in Llandudno and gave an outlook on the work under way for a sister-app covering Anglesey. Catrin showed some of the work that the Women’s Archive had undertaken throughout the past two years to establish several heritage walks around women’s lives across the south of Wales and also gave an outlook on upcoming heritage walks.
