To comply with the Royal Warrant and to further the strategic objectives of the Royal Commission, the aim of the National Monuments Record is to collect, maintain and make available a comprehensive record of the archaeological, architectural and historical monuments of Wales, including its territorial waters, from the earliest times to the present day.
The National Monuments Record of Wales archive has been designated an approved place of deposit under the Public Records Act of 1958, and it has an obligation to care for, preserve, and add to the records in its charge, and to make its collections available to the public. The care of its records must meet professional archival standards and the records must be stored in optimum conditions.
The Royal Commission’s Collecting Policy sets out the guidelines to which the Commission adheres in acquiring material for and maintaining the National Monuments Record archive.
The Collecting Policy of the Royal Commission is available to be downloaded from this page. If you require a printed version of the document you are welcome to contact us requesting a copy.
