The Learning Zone

Gathering the Jewels is a website containing thousands of images relating to the culture and history of Wales. It includes images of original photographs, documents, diaries, letters, pictures, printed books and museum objects, ranging in date from prehistory to the present day, and from all parts of Wales. The original items are held by museums, libraries and archives, local and national, across Wales. They have collaborated with Gathering the Jewels to help create a website where everyone can learn about the heritage and culture of Wales.

Many of the images are accompanied by a short description, written by the Gathering the Jewels project officers - all academics or heritage sector professionals - or by the repository holding the original item.

The website is a great resource for teachers and pupils. It includes a wealth of material relevant to History and Geography, Art and Design, English and Welsh, and to the development of the Curriculum Cymreig across a range of subjects.
