RCAHMW enhances Welsh heritage database Coflein

The Royal Commission for the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (https://rcahmw.gov.uk) has posted a review of changes it made to its Coflein database in 2018.

Coflein, which is accessible at www.coflein.gov.uk, is the body's online database and Inventory of ancient and historical monuments, providing access to hundreds of thousands of heritage based documents. Amongst the enhancements is an overhaul of the Coflein Mapping system, the addition of thousands of aerial photographs across Wales, from recently commissioned aerial surveys, and improved descriptions on many catalogue entries.
