Welsh Slate at the Hay Festival

The Royal Commission’s latest publication Welsh Slate: Archaeology and History of an Industry was featured at this year’s Hay Festival with author David Gwyn delivering an authoritative and entertaining lecture exploring all aspects of the industry from the cultural to the technical, and from the home to the quarries.

Royal Commission Secretary Christopher Catling chaired the session, with one of the main topics of discussion the Gwynedd Council led World Heritage bid for the Industry. It was heartening to see the audience’s overwhelming support for the bid.
