Welcome to Gathering the Jewels.

Here you will find over 20,000 images of objects, books, letters, aerial photographs and other items from museums, libraries and record offices in Wales.


Themes have been created to bring together related items which appear on our website. Some themes are made up of collections of letters, photographs, artefacts or paintings. Other themes include a variety of items which are related to a particular subject, event or individual. As well as making it possible for you to view individual items as collections, the majority of themes include descriptions which provide additional background information. Every day, three different themes are selected for you to view, 'Today's Themes'. You can also choose to view our 'A-Z Theme List' or 'Browse Themes'.
