Securing our common heritage

Cardiff Capital Region has a rich and varied cultural heritage. Alongside its linguistic and literary legacy, it was a birthplace of the industrial revolution and a focal point for political reform.

The historical significance of the area stretches back to the Bronze Age, with sites of national and international importance. As a University we work closely with external partners to help to secure, and to enhance, this common cultural heritage. 

This is a wide-ranging area and examples of our work in this area include initiatives involving support for our literary heritage; musical traditions, and our linguistic heritage, as well as actions focused on historical artefacts and settings. We work with national institutions, such as the National Museum of Wales, and local organisations and communities in the support and promotion of these activities.
