12 & 13 February 2020, Aberystwyth Arts CentreAberystwyth

Organised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, Digital Past is an annual two day conference which showcases innovative digital technologies and techniques for data capture, interpretation and dissemination of the heritage of Wales, the UK and beyond.

Angela Jones presents to the Digital Past 2020 Conference in Aberystwyth.

Bringing together individuals from the commercial, public, academic, third sector and voluntary sectors, the conference aims to promote learning, discussion and debate around a range of digital technologies in current use, or in development, to record and understand the historic environment.

PLANED staff were fortunate enough to attend, and our Five Communities Group project officers delivered two workshops.

“It was fantastic to be presenting and promoting a Pembrokeshire based project at an international conference; to be able to speak at the same event with individuals of both national and international note in the archival sector and be so well received with such interest and enthusiasm speaks volumes about this project.”

“Having the opportunity to talk through what we were delivering and how it was so helpful to history groups was brilliant. We had very positive feedback from a range of people including the National Archives of Wales and the representative from UNESCO . We talked about where we have got to how we had got to that point – it was so good to listen to people being so enthusiastic about our work.”
