Come and join us for this year’s Carto-Cymru – The Wales Map Symposium 2024

The subject of this year’s symposium is ‘Maps and their Makers’ and will focus on how understanding the skills and work of cartographers and surveyors, who have created maps throughout the centuries, gives us a better understanding of the process used to create them. This year’s event will be held on Friday 17th May, 2024 in The Drwm at the National Library of Wales in co-operation with the British Cartographic Society and in partnership with the Commission.

Our Mapping Officer Jon Dollery will be presenting a lecture on ‘Mapping the Past: RCAHMW & OS Antiquity Modelling’ and Gareth Edwards, our Head of Knowledge and Understanding, will present a closing address for the day. Chair for the day will be Scott Lloyd, the Commission’s Research Manager. Other highlights will include ‘Red Star to Red Dragon: The Soviet Mapping of Wales’ by John Davies & Dr. Alex Kent, Vice-President, International Cartographic Association.

Ticket prices include a lunchtime buffet and there is a special student online offer of only £5. This is a bilingual event and translation will be provided for Welsh language presentations.
