Website looks for social histories of Wales

A website showcasing the social history of Wales is being unveiled at the National Eisteddfod of Wales.

People's Collection Wales is a bilingual gathering of experiences, pictures and video of life in Wales.

Archive material from museums has been used, but the developers are now looking for contributions from the public.

The website uses GPS technology allowing the viewer to travel a map of Wales and view artefacts in 3D.

The site will be formally launched on the Eisteddfod field in Ebbw Vale by Heritage Minister Alun Ffred Jones.
