CARDIFF CONFERENCE 2019 – save the date!!

Our 2019 ANNUAL CONFERENCE will be held at St Fagan’s National Museum of History, Cardiff
23-24 March 2019

Following our return visit to National Museums Scotland, Edinburgh in 2018, we return to our 2003 host city of Cardiff for 2019. The Museum of Welsh Life is part of Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales and has recently been re-developed, boasting a brand new entrance building housing the galleries, restaurant, shop and a learning centre complete with new lecture theatre and a large studio space we will be using for posters and refreshments.

It is located in the countryside just north of the city centre which has many options for accommodation available. Although there is no public transport available to the site, we hope to be able to provide some for any delegates without their own transport

A field visit is not planned but we can offer suggestions for where to visit those whose conference is not complete without searching out marine life on the shore. However, tours of the Natural Sciences collections, including the Mollusca and marine invertebrate collections, at National Museum Wales in the city centre, will be possible on the Friday for those arriving early, as well as a workshop looking at mollusc and polychaete identification.

Look out for further details here on the website and in emails at a later date.

Meanwhile offers to present a paper or poster are welcome and can be sent to: conference@pmnhs.co.uk
