The Royal Commission Library

The Royal Commission’s Library is an open access reference library that directly complements our archive collections.

It covers all aspects of Welsh archaeology, architecture, history, maritime archaeology, topography and cartography, planning legislation and historic environment strategy, while texts covering wider geographic areas provide context. Holdings are particularly strong on the subject areas of prehistory, Roman Britain, Welsh nonconformity, Welsh topography, vernacular architecture and industrial archaeology.

The library collects the current county historical journals for Wales, as well as relevant specialist archaeological, architectural and historical periodicals.

Opening Hours

We are open Tuesday to Thursday, 9:30 – 16:30
