Gweledigaeth yr Oesoedd Canol Diwylliant Gweledol Cymru Synopsis

This CD-ROM combines a variety of approaches designed to enable the user to appreciate and understand the imaging of the Welsh nation during the period extending from the collapse of Roman government in the fifth century to the Renaissance of the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. It includes over 1,000 pictures and artefacts, which reveal the startling richness of imagery surviving in Wales from the Middle Ages. In combination with the CD-ROMs The Visual Culture of Wales: Industrial Society, and The Visual Culture of Wales: Imaging the Nation, this unparalleled resource is an essential companion for anyone interested in the visual inheritance of Wales.

Gweledigaeth yr Oesoedd Canol Diwylliant Gweledol Cymru Press Reviews

'The service that his project has done in re-excavating and cataloguing work in Wales is of immense importance. He has cast his net more widely than his predecessors, developing arguments about the cultural significance of neglected artists ... phenomenal amounts of information.' (Planet - The Welsh Internationalist)
