Tra Môr yn Fur: Wales and the Sea

29.09.18 – 23.02.19


Surrounded by the ocean on three sides, it isn’t surprising that Wales has a close relationship with the sea. These waters have shaped not only the coastline of Wales, but also the history and imagination of the Welsh people. Inspired by stories and images from the collections of The National Library of Wales, The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales and the National Waterfront Museum, this exhibition explores our relationship with the sea and how it has impacted on our landscape and culture.
