Welsh Copper

Monday, 21 November 2011

A website all about Welsh Copper has been lauched. The website is a learning legacy site using the resources created for the Global and Local Worlds of Welsh Copper knowledge exchange project.

It makes many of the resources generated for various of the project's initiatives freely available and is packed full of information about copper's industrialisation in Wales and how it impacted upon world trade. Highlights include exhibition guides with downloadable resources relating to the recent major exhibition at the National Waterfront Museum, Swansea, and that now accompany the travelling exhibition.

It is aimed primarily as introductory material that can be used in the class or seminar room or just by those interested in learning more about this fascinating aspect of industrial history and heritage.

It also has information about copper business archives, including news about a survey of copper archives that the project has undertaken.
